No Bits for Birbiglia on the Showalter Showalter

Filed Under Funny 2.0, Stand-Up Comedy

Michael Showalter’s deliciously squirmy talk show brings on Mike Birbiglia to perform stand-up, sitting down. But Birbigs ain’t havin’ it…

My favorite part: every time Birbiglia asserts his desire to have a real conversation, he sneaks in a plug for something, making for a brilliant double barb that gets both host and guest. For someone who’s probably the most “likable” comic of his generation, it’s fun to see Birbiglia send himself up a little.
