It’s hard not to wonder what elixir of the gods Mike Birbiglia must be sipping. Writing, directing, acting, stand-up, touring, one-man shows: His hands are full, likely even weighted down with the Midas Touch.
Just in the past few years, Birbiglia has managed to create a masterpiece with his film Don’t Think Twice and a critically acclaimed off-Broadway show-turned-special—which he first toured for four years—with Thank God For Jokes. Now, with barely a breath in between, the man behind “What I should have said… was nothing” is jetting off onto his The New One tour.
Back when Birbiglia was getting ready to bring Thank God for Jokes on tour, he decided to set up a residency at Brooklyn’s Union Hall as a precursor—a way to gauge audience reactions to new material before sealing it into the touring show. “How do I tell everybody, so there is no ambiguity, that this is working out new material and they shouldn’t take too much stock in it?” he asks. “It will be different from the final version… So I was like, ‘What if I call it Working It Out?’”
Now he’s taken the same approach to The New One: “working it out” into July, then crossing it over into his Just For Laugh show before a two-week residency at the Berkeley Repertory Theater—then off to 25 cities come fall.
