Mike Birbiglia

Time Magazine calls comedian Mike Birbiglia "master of the personal, embarrassing tale."

Fresh off his award-winning, profoundly embarrassing romantic confessional My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, Birbiglia is back on the stage with Thank God For Jokes, an all-new comedic exploration of jokes and how they can get you in trouble. Join this masterfully funny monologist as he gets arrested in New Jersey, screamed at by a famous director, heckled by legendary Muppet Show grumps Statler and Waldorf, and attacked by zombie rodents.

The Massachusetts native wrote, directed and starred in the 2012 film Sleepwalk With Me, based on his semi-autobiographical one-man show about the anxieties that come with being a working comedian.

He’s a regular contributor to public radio’s This American Life, whose host Ira Glass advises says "Birbiglia's stories are even funnier live than they are on the radio." 

Enjoy an evening out in downtown St. Petersburg! Head downtown early and have dinner at Tangerine. Want more options? Our We Recommend partners offer a wide variety of cuisines and dining experiences that will complement any show. Looking for the ultimate in convenience? Have your dinner delivered directly to the theater prior to the show and enjoy dinner in our beautiful waterfront atrium.

Student tickets, $25, are available at the Box Office only, with valid student ID (limit two tickets per person).
