Neil Genzlinger of the New York Times called Mike Birbiglia’s recent show Thank God for Jokes “the best night I’ve spent in a theatre in a very long time.” In The New One the award-winning comedian approaches an entirely new subject in a new way with the same heart and humor we’ve come to expect. Do not miss the new one. It may be the best one.
