Award-winning comedian, actor and filmmaker Mike Birbiglia is doing so well with his “Thank God For Jokes” tour that he’s adding 32 more cities to the schedule. In this all-new show, Birbiglia brings more of his signature storytelling, with some great new stories about how jokes can get you in trouble. Also, why he got arrested in New Jersey, screamed at by a famous director, heckled by Statler and Waldorf, and attacked by zombie rodents. Good news for Seattle, Denver, Fort Collins Co, Red Bank NJ, Toronto, Chicago, St Louis, and 25 other cities, because Mike puts on a great show. Want to follow him for the whole tour? Great! Birbigsies are welcome!
