At the suggestion of his therapist, Mike Birbiglia started writing down his awkward experiences in a journal. Then he started sharing his journal entries with his fans in a blog called "My Secret Public Journal" and in weekly radio segments on "The Bob & Tom Show" going out to millions of people across the country. Birbiglia taped his all-new, laugh-out-loud special, "What I Should Have Said Was Nothing," in November at New York University's Skirball Cultural Center as he toured the country to support the release of his COMEDY CENTRAL Records CD, "My Secret Public Journal Live."
For the past seven years, Birbiglia has toured the country honing the act that helped make him one of the youngest comedians ever to appear on "The Late Show with David Letterman" and popularized the phrase "Cracker Please" as well as the renaming of George Bush as "Whiffle Ball Tony." This led to Birbiglia's two highly rated "COMEDY CENTRAL Presents" half-hour specials and his COMEDY CENTRAL Records debut "Two Drink Mike." Birbiglia's "My Secret Public Journal Live" follow-up CD received rave reviews. Time Out New Yorkcalled "Journal" "the comedy album of the year" and Punchline Magazine called it "the best comedy album of this generation," in addition to accolades it received from The Denver Post, Boston Globe, Washington Post, Time Out Chicago and Las Vegas Weekly.
This dude is hilarious.
