Award-winning filmmaker, author, and comedian Mike Birbiglia returns to the stage with more painfully awkward stories of telling jokes and how that can get you in trouble. Join Birbiglia as he visits Cats-a-chusetts, argues with someone about their nut allergy, hosts an awards show for angry celebrities, and learns that Fozzie Bear is a tough act to follow. Ira Glass of public radio’s This American Life writes “Birbiglia’s stories are even funnier live than they are on the radio.” Time Magazine calls Birbiglia “master of the personal, embarrassing tale.” The New York Times describes him as a “supremely enjoyable monologist.”
