Mike Birbiglia Brings My Girlfriend's Boyfriend to Boise

Friday, March 23


Mike Birbiglia doesn't have a problem with intimate details, as anyone who's heard his skit on his sleepwalking problem can attest to. He's appeared on a book jacket and on posters in his pajamas, and now the comedian also wants to tell you about his girlfriend's boyfriend at the Egyptian Theatre on Friday, March 23.

What we don't know about Birbiglia is when he finds time to sleep or sleepwalk--he's one busy dude. You may have heard of his book/off-Broadway smash Sleepwalk With Me, which has since morphed into a film written, directed by and starring the 30-something funny man. The film became an official selection at the SXSW Film Festival, and was featured at the Sundance Film Festival.

When he's not earning accolades for plays, movies and books, Birbiglia makes people laugh. He has starred in three Comedy Central Presents specials, been a guest on nearly every late-night talk show, and is a frequent contributor to This American Life and the Bob and Tom Show. And now he's on a national tour with his latest stand-up show, My Girlfriend's Boyfriend, which bears the curios tagline "in the end, everyone makes out."

The show includes tales of Birbiglia's romantic blunders and opened off-Broadway at the Barrow Street Theatre in New York City on March 18, 2011. After more than 80 performances, Birbiglia has taken his show on the road to more than 20 cities, including a stop in Boise. If you're lucky, you could even win a pair of tickets on the Promo page at
