MIKE BIRBIGLIA: MY GIRLFRIEND’S BOYFRIEND

SYNOPSIS

In Mike Birbiglia’s My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, Mike recounts the tribulations he’s endured in a lifetime pursuit of love. It’s a funny and uplifting look at the quandary of finding out that you’re not her first choice, and that you might not even be her second. Ultimately, My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend is the story of one man’s quest to find happiness while remaining true to himself.

JOY’S REVIEW

Mike Birbiglia kind of burst on the scene with Sleepwalk With Me. He’s a very talented performer who basically is kind of young, droll. I was compare him to Spalding Gray. Not quite as depressed, but a little bit of it’; he has the same persona, except instead of talking about his childhood and growing up, he is talking about his love life from basically high school on. He’s just charming. He sort of gets up on the stage and you feel like he’s your best friend. Great sense of comic timing and this is a really enjoyable 75 minutes. It’s a sold out show and I would encourage you to go see it. Four and a half stars!
