Award-winning comedian, author, and filmmaker Mike Birbiglia will be performing at the Gaillard Center on Friday, September 8th at 7 pm. The show is being held in partnership with the Charleston Comedy Festival.
Birbiglia has starred in three Comedy Central specials and drawn rave reviews for his one-man performance Sleepwalk With Me and My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend. The former was turned into a book and feature film.
In addition to those projects, Birbiglia has appeared in films like Trainwreck, Going the Distance, Cedar Rapids, The Fault in Our Stars and Annie. He’s also had roles in HBO’s Girls and the hit Netflix show Orange Is the New Black.
In 2016, he wrote, directed, released, and starred in the movie Don’t Think Twice, a comedy-drama featuring Keegan-Michael Key, Gillian Jacobs, Kate Micucci, Tami Sagher and Chris Gethard. The film premiered at South by Southwest.
Birbiglia’s most recent stand-up special, Thank God for Jokes, was released on Netflix in February.
