Mike Birbiglia

In high school Mike started a sketch comedy group called "The Sickies." He went to Georgetown University where he won "The Funniest Man on Campus" contest. This earned him the chance to perform at the D.C. Improv, where he worked in the ticket window, developed an act, and dreamed of becoming a nationally headlining comedian. Then he went to New York City and went on The Late Show with David Letterman. This led to a string of television appearances that made him a comedian. He now lives in Greenwich Village and tour the country. His "aspirations are to be an author, a filmmaker and the owner of a pizza restaurant where 28-year-olds can hang out." birbigs.com Listen at Last.fm
In 2nd grade I won the "Author of the Month" at St. Mary's School in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts for my poetry about bears and my sister and Thanksgiving. My aspirations were to be a poet, a teacher, or the owner of a pizza restaurant where 2nd graders could hang out. In 6th grade, I wrote a rap song for the graduation ceremony of the D.A.R.E. program.
I decided that I wanted to be a rapper, a break-dancer or the owner of a pizza restaurant where 6th graders could hang out. In high school, I started a sketch comedy group called "The Sickies."
Then I went to college in DC and got a job at the D.C. Improv, where I worked in the ticket window, developed an act, and decided to be a comedian. Then I moved to New York City and got asked to be on The Late Show with David Letterman. This led to a bunch of television appearances on other talk shows and my own Comedy Central Presents special.
Now I live in Greenwich Village and tour the country. I keep a journal called MY SECRET PUBLIC JOURNAL, which i read live on The Bob and Tom radio show and email to a bunch of people. (you can sign up, too!) This winter, I'm releasing my debut CD from Comedy Central Records called 2 DRINK MIKE, I'm taping another Comedy Central special, and am going out on Comedy Central's 20 college MEDIUM MAN ON CAMPUS TOUR. My aspirations now are to be an author, a filmmaker and the owner of a pizza restaurant where 27 year olds can hang out. for more on me, go to my website, it's www.birbigs.com
