A sincere thanks to you guys for an amazing 2013.

Dear friends, It’s been quite a year. I performed My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend in 20 cities across America and Australia, including a finale show at Carnegie Hall. Then I filmed the show in Seattle and released it on Netflix, iTunes, and birbigshirts.com. Whoa. That’s a lot of stuff. And I literally couldn’t have done it without you guys. What I do is […]

Over the past 3 years I’ve obsessively written and rewritten this material to the point where, even if you saw the off-Broadway show in NYC, it’s actually quite different. It feels cathartic to let go of all of […]

Birbiglia does the weather.

Hey friends, I’m at the airport heading to Fayetteville, AR. Is that right, AR? Or AK? Or is that Alaska? Either way I’m going to both this month. I’m a bit disoriented as I just returned from Australia, which is so far away that it’s another day there right now. Every day since returning from […]
