Mike Birbiglia: The Old Man and the Pool

About This Show

On the heels of his award-winning Broadway show The New One, comedian and storyteller Mike Birbiglia returns to Berkeley Rep with a tale of life, death, and his visits to a highly chlorinated YMCA pool. Like all of Birbiglia’s shows, it blends absurd jokes and surprising stories for what amounts to one single story. It’s a rumination on middle age that celebrates life while making detours into pizza math, pulmonary tests, and glass jars of peanut M&M’s.
