Be our Guest: Mike Birbiglia

ae birbigliaWin tickets to comedian, Mike Birbiglia’s show at The Rio Theatre on Sunday

Here’s a thought experiment: take the most embarrassing and awful of family, romantic and social things that have happened to you, turn them into jokes, and tell them to the world. Sound fun? Yeah, I don’t think so either. But hearing someone else’s embarrassing, awful stories can be wildly entertaining, especially when told by a master storyteller like Mike Birbiglia. A comedian, writer, actor and director, Birbiglia has made a career off of his personal blunders and garnered widespread acclaim for his confessional and goofy, boy-next-door style.

INFO: 7:30 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 7. Rio Theatre, 1205 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. $26.25/adv, $42/door. 423-8209.

WANT TO GO? Go to http://www.santacruz.com/giveaways/mike-birbiglia before 11 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 5 to enter to win a pair of tickets to the show.
