Mike Birbiglia: Working It Out
Comedian Mike Birbiglia just finished up a four month run on Broadway performing his solo show The New One and now he's all out of jokes. Luckily, he's been developing some new jokes and stories. Mike will be reading and performing the best of the new. Which is hopefully better than the best of the old.
