REVIEWS

Introduced to New York theater 10 years ago with the solo show,Sleepwalk with Me, about his sleeping disorder, a continuing condition well-mined for jokes in the current show, Birbiglia in performance is challenging to categorize. He is more than a comedian; his brand of autobiographical storytelling leaves the audience wondering where the line is drawn between fact and fiction. Especially since, like all great storytellers, Birbiglia certainly knows how to exaggerate for comic effect. (Ira Glass of NPR’s “This American Life” is one of the producers and it is easy to see the idiomatic cross over between that show and this one.) CONTINUE READING THE BROADWAY NEWS REVIEW
