Mike Birbiglia: The New One ran on Broadway from fall 2018 through early 2019, following an acclaimed, sold-out run Off-Broadway in summer 2018. The show is written and performed by Birbiglia, featuring additional writing by Jennifer Hope Stein and direction by Seth Barrish.
Birbiglia's other recent shows include My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend and Thank God for Jokes, which were both filmed for Netflix. In addition to performing live, Birbiglia wrote, directed, and starred in the films Sleepwalk with Me and Don’t Think Twice.
