The Whole Story
The Whole Story
Hey guys, Mike Birbiglia here. I'm doing something a little different this time. I'm producing (but not performing in) a night of comedy storytelling. I’ve noticed that some of the special guests on my tours have great stories that they don’t always tell on stage. The stories are longer. Sometimes they’re uncomfortable. But they’re also very, very funny. So often we hear comics make reference to some crazy situation or encounter but we don’t hear the whole thing. So that’s what this show is. The Whole Story.
