What Is the Story of Mike Birbiglia’s My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend?
This solo show centers on comedian Mike Birbiglia’s sometimes rocky romantic history, from junior high crushes to a happy ending with his wife, Jenny. (The show’s title riffs on Birbiglia’s plight when he discovered that his high school honey had a second boyfriend stashed away.) In typically self-deprecating style, Birbiglia jokes about how kissing is like watching a dog eating spaghetti, describes 10 reasons why he didn’t believe in marriage and relates the story of an accident that helped change his perspective on life and love.
