Multi award-winning American comedian Mike Birbiglia returns to London for
four nights only at The Leicester Square Theatre from 8 – 11 June 2018, with
his brand-new show ‘The New One’.
Neil Genzlinger of The New York Times called Mike Birbiglia’s recent show
Thank God For Jokes “the best night I’ve spent in a theatre in a very long
time”. In ‘The New One’ the award-winning comedian approaches an entirely
new subject in a new way with the same heart and humour we’ve come to
expect. This show looks at when it’s the right time to settle down and have
children, how to deal with the drama of sleep-walking and tales of what
happened when he checked out Amsterdam’s red light district.
Do not miss the new one. It may be the best one.
Thank God for Jokes experienced widespread success in the US, completing a
huge 100-city tour, and Birbiglia then took the show off-Broadway to The
Lynn Redgrave Theater. Mike Birbiglia first burst onto the scene in 2012
with his Sundance award-winning directorial debut Sleepwalk With Me. In
recent years his work started appearing on public radio’s This American
Life, where he began a meaningful collaboration with host and producer Ira
