Mike Birbiglia will have a new 1-man show this winter

NEW YORK (AP) — Mike Birbiglia, a stand-up comedian & off-Broadway star, will tackle something he knows a lot approximately in his new one-man show — joke-telling.

In "Mike Birbiglia: Thank God For Jokes," the performer tackles "the minefield that is modern-day joke-telling." It plays the Lynn Redgrave Theater in lower Manhattan beginning Feb. 2. Seth Barrish directs.

Birbiglia's other shows include "Sleepwalk with Me," approximately the time he sleepwalked out a second-story window. In "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend," he tells how he was nearly killed in a car accident when a drunk driver rammed him. That play was the basis of his memoir, "Sleepwalk with Me."

p>Birbiglia, who has multiple albums & TV specials, moreover has made appearances on public radio's "This American Life" & the storytelling organization the Moth.
