Mike Birbiglia - Thank God for Jokes Tour

October 20

Mike Birbiglia declares that a joke should never end with ‘I’m joking.’ In his all-new comedy, Birbiglia tiptoes hilariously through the minefield that is modern-day joke-telling. Join Mike as he learns that the same jokes that elicit laughter have the power to produce tears, rage and a whole lot of getting yelled at. Ultimately it's a show that asks, “How far should we go for the laugh?”
