Quotes

Mike Birbiglia: Maybe this will be like one of those romantic comedy montages: We'll go to the carnival, we'll get stuck on the top of the Ferris wheel, we'll make out, it'll all take a minute and a half, and it'll be set to a Phil Collins song.

User Reviews

 
So beyond simply stand-up. Creative Gold!
26 May 2017 | by kerinscott-91779See all my reviews

Mike Birbiglia's stand-up special "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend" is absolutely genius. The special is in essence one story where he meticulously weaves correlating humorous snippets into the telling of the story. As an audience participant you're invested in the outcome of the story as he has artfully captivated your attention. As he crescendos to the conclusion, you realize every detailed joke presented over the hour had great purpose in the unveiling of this lone story.

Did I laugh frequently? Yes. Was it the funniest stand-up ever? No. Was it by far the best written stand-up I've ever seen? A resounding yes! Please watch it! (Recommended to watch it in one sitting, so wait until you have 75 minutes).
