I’d say that for the most part we’d all consider ourselves an expert on our own lives but rarely does that ever translate into money & comedy, but this next comedian has such a way of telling his life story that you just can’t help but wanna listen.
Mike Birbiglia is a great story teller. He has such a great format in which he shares all of his stories that it just seems compelling. Usually a comedian will tell a joke and you laugh and a great deal of the time that is the entire show, especially for comedians who don’t really have a point and are only in it for the money, but Mike is compelling. He doesn’t just tell you jokes but he tells you his life story and while funny it is also a bit inspiring. In his album Sleepwalk with me he tells you about his struggles with love and, wouldn’t you know it, sleep walking, and it is truly a work of art. probably in my top 5 favorite albums. His one track, Mike Birbiglia – Delusion, has a phrase in it that I still use to this day and you just have to listen to find out what it is. Hint: it is about love.
Having said that I’d say my favorite joke of his would have to be Mike Birbiglia – I’m A Bear, Etc. because I just love the story and it still makes me laugh and I have heard it a thousand times. have any of you ever walked in your sleep? tell me about it in the comment section below.
