Bring on the Wintry Mix. On to Madison, Milwaukee, and Grand Rapids!

Dear Journal, This week I returned to New York after 5 weeks on the road. Last weekend I played the Wilbur Theatre in my hometown of Boston, which was thrilling, though, for a moment, uncertain. There was a blizzard and the governor asked people to stay off of the road, except in the event of […]

I’m Heading to Boston to Take Some Cuts.

Hey Everybody!  I have huge news that comes in two convenient parts. It’s like a Kit Kat bar of useful information (this analogy will not carry through).

Birbiglia escapes Michigan. Last seen in Salt Lake City!

Dear Journal, I just finished up the first week of my 100-city tour and I’m feeling pretty great. A lot of people thought I was crazy to tour Michigan in January, including my wife, parents, and strangers, but I knew it was the smart thing to do. Fortunately my brother Joe rented us a giant […]

See My Carnegie Hall Finale this Sunday, June 2nd

Hey friends, It’s just 5 days until I perform “My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend” for the final time at Carnegie Hall. 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.
