Mike Birbiglia wants you to cancel Thanksgiving.
Birbigs announced his newest special, Mike Birbiglia: The New One, this week from all his social channels, and its coming to Netflix ON THANKSGIVING. The award-winning Broadway show, Mike Birbiglia: The New One, was filmed at the Cort Theater in Manhattan and will now be available to a global audience, but may interrupt your turkey dinner.
Brilliantly blending observational and confessional comedy, Mike struggles with the existential question of whether he wants to bring a child into the world.
In 2008, Nathan Lane introduced New York City theatergoers to Mike Birbiglia by presenting Birbiglia’s solo theater debut, Sleepwalk with Me, which went on to be adapted into a New York Times bestselling book and Sundance award-winning feature film of the same name. Since then Birbiglia has written & performed Thank God For Jokes and My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend for which he received a Lucille Lortel Award. Before it was a Netflix Special, The New One was a Broadway show and before that it played a 40-city run.
The special will launch globally on Netflix on November 26, 2019.

Hey everyone! Big announcement! THE NEW ONE is coming to @netflixisajoke on November 26! Directed by Seth Barrish. We’re super proud of this show. I’m doing a 5 week run at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles (@ctgla). These will be the final live shows of The New One, then you can watch it over Thanksgiving dinner on Netflix. It touches on a bunch of uncomfortable topics but isn’t that what Thanksgiving is about?
