Comedian Mike Birbiglia is in town for one-night only

Best-selling author and comedian Mike Birbiglia is presenting his one-man show, My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, this Friday at the Holland Center

Birbiglia is a regular guest on Public Radio International’s This American Life, heard Saturday mornings on KIOS.  He says he’s creating a film from footage of My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, a show he says he’s constantly rewriting. 

Birbiglia says the show is about how he decided to get married despite his not believing in the idea of marriage.

"It’s about love and pain and first kisses and first girlfriends. It’s about all the painful things that go into romance when you’re growing up and how those experiences inform our adult choices.”

Birbiglia says the Omaha show will be one of the final performances of the tour.  My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend takes place this Friday at 8:00 p.m. at the Holland Performing Arts Center
