Mike Birbiglia here.
I had planned to come to Austin and put on the comedy show of the century at the Paramount and then...well, you know.
So I've been monitoring the state and local rules with my agent, Mike, and brother Joe, as well as the theatre. At first we thought early summer, then late Fall, and now we've decided the safest way to do it is to schedule this show for almost exactly the same time next year. That will give me exactly one year to make the material that much better.
In the meantime I will be putting out a podcast called "Working It Out" (stay tuned), raising money for local comedy club waitstaffs, and releasing my book The New One: Painfully True Stories from a Reluctant Dad.
THE NEW DATE IS NOW THURSDAY, MAY 13, 2021, and your current seats are still valid for the new date. Your tickets for the new date will be sent to your email address in 5-7 days from the Paramount Theatre.
Looking forward to seeing you in '21 for the belated comedy show of the century.
