Show Description

Mike Birbiglia's The New One comes to Broadway!

Mike Birbiglia has a new one. It’s called The New One. He’s made you laugh in Sleepwalk with Me (it was a play presented by Nathan Lane, then a movie, THEN a book), My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend  and Thank God for Jokes. (He was also really funny in that one season of Orange Is the New Black. And in Billions. And Broad City.)

Now he’s on Broadway telling a new story in a new way with the same heart and humor we’ve come to expect. Lin-Manuel Miranda called The New One “as perfect a night as you’re gonna get.”

Do not miss The New One. Some people say it’s his best one. (It was John Mulaney. Also, Vogue.)

Introduced to New York theater 10 years ago with the solo show,Sleepwalk with Me, about his sleeping disorder, a continuing condition well-mined for jokes in the current show, Birbiglia in performance is challenging to categorize. He is more than a comedian; his brand of autobiographical storytelling leaves the audience wondering where the line is drawn between fact and fiction. Especially since, like all great storytellers, Birbiglia certainly knows how to exaggerate for comic effect. (Ira Glass of NPR’s “This American Life” is one of the producers and it is easy to see the idiomatic cross over between that show and this one.)

No matter how bad your mood... Mike Birbiglia will make you laugh. A lot. ... directed on a grand stage but also intimately by Seth Barrish

NYT's CRITIC'S PICK
Mr. Birbiglia’s voice becomes a low, wraparound, pleasure-drenched caress. This somnolent sound makes you feel both relaxed and attentive, drowsy and giddy."
