Mike Birbiglia’s My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend
Thu., Jan. 24, 8 p.m. 2013
Regularly priced tickets start at $25.50.
Comedian Mike Birbiglia doesn't sugarcoat life's travails but drapes his laments in a Snuggie of amiable wit. The humorist who dramatized his sleep disorder in a movie he cowrote with This American Life's Ira Glass — Sleepwalk With Me — now takes on the foibles of love during his latest tour. My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend was nominated for both the Drama Desk and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Solo Performance. It won the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show, and Time Out New York praises it for its balance of "punchlines and pathos.” (Look for a full-length feature on Birbiglia in CL and at CLTampa.com Jan. 17.) —Julie Garisto
