Storyline

A few years ago my therapist suggested I keep a journal of the awkward moments occurring in my life. Around the same time audiences were demanding more material, so I started sending this journal to my mailing list and then telling those stories onstage. Written by Anonymous

Guy-Next-Door Comic Brings Universal Laughs
18 March 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Stand-up comedian and frequent contributor to This American Life, Mike Birbiglia, takes on his first feature-length special. Coming off like your girlfriend's brother who still lives in the basement of his parents' house, Birbiglia seems too guy-off-the-street to have anything interesting to say, but his hindsight makes for a great lens through which to view his life. Theming the show as a therapy tool, his take on a therapy session is substantially less intense than, say, someone like Marc Maron. Instead, he uses the time to unburden himself of embarrassing situations and awkward moments. Focuses mostly on personal material and anecdotes about past employment or gigs he had, but his take is universal and it's easy to get on-board with his good-natured demeanor. The funniest "average guy" you'll ever see.
