Thank God for Jokes, the new solo show from Mike Birbiglia, has extended its run at the Lynn Redgrave Theater for three additional months. The work, whic his directed by Seth Barrish, will now run through May 29.

In his all-new comedy, Birbiglia tiptoes hilariously through the minefield that is modern-day joke-telling. Join Birbiglia as he learns that the same jokes that elicit laughter have the power to produce tears, rage, and a whole lot of getting yelled at. Ultimately it's a show that asks, "How far should we go for the laugh?"

Birbiglia is the author/star of solo shows Sleepwalk With Me and My Girlfriend's Boyfriend. Sleepwalk With Me was also turned into a Sundance Award-winning feature film of the same title. He appeared in Orange Is the New Black, Trainwreck, and the new film Don't Think Twice, which he also wrote and directed.

Thank God for Jokes features set design by Beowulf Borritt and is produced by Mike Berkowitz, Joseph Birbiglia, Ron Delsener, and Mike Lavoie.
