Fantastic
28 March 2017 | by lenzkeaSee all my reviews

I loved this comedy show, Mike Birbiglia: Thank God for Jokes. It was absolutely fantastic. Mike was an absolute natural as he walked around the stage and interacted with his audience. He was real and easy to relate to. I laughed until tears came to my eye's and my heart warmed up. I thoroughly enjoyed him and will be watching for his show's to come to my area, because I would definitely buy a ticket to go see him in person. Thanks so much, Mr. Birbiglia! :)
