Culture Project presents a limited Off-Broadway engagement of award-winning comedian Mike Birbiglia with his one-of-a-kind storytelling style. More…
Mike Birbiglia declares that a joke should never end with ‘I’m joking.’ In his all-new comedy, Birbiglia tiptoes through the minefield that is modern-day joke-telling. Mike 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?”
