This weekend I film “Thank God For Jokes” in Brooklyn for Netflix. (a few tix avail!) It’s been an amazing run. Literally 100 cities (figuratively, “MILLIONS of cities”). So, THANK YOU.
Anyway, good news. New hour of comedy to work out. I’ve never been more excited about standup in my whole career. I have this sense that anything is possible and that I’m a better writer than when I started. I’ve written about 40 or 50 pages of raw standup that MAY OR MAY NOT work. So I’m taking it on the road to small clubs. Long Island, Westchester, New Jersey, Charlotte, Irvine, Cincinnati, DC, West Palm Beach, Virginia Beach, Philadelphia, and Syracuse. A lot of clubs close to my home in Brooklyn because I have an 18-month-old daughter and I’m a phenomenal father. (applause)
These “Working It Out” shows will be raw, semi-improvised, unfinished. When I watch my favorite comics like Chris Rock or Dave Chappelle or Louis CK at the Comedy Cellar- THESE ARE THE SETS I LIKE TO SEE. I like seeing things in early stages. It might be what you’re into. It might not. That said, I promise that my heart will be in it and sometimes my writing has to catch up to my heart.
But these shows will be FUN. And FUNNY. And ONE OF A KIND.
I won’t be inundating you with tweets and Facebook posts about these shows, but if you want updates as I add cities, sign up for my mailing list at birbigs.com. You will never be spammed, the list is never shared, and I will email you only once every 2 or 3 weeks, maybe less.
Thanks again for your support of my movie “Don’t Think Twice” (It’s on iTunes November 15th!) and I hope to see you out at these shows.
