Review On THE NEW ONE


Stephen Fife

Writer, Non-Registered Critics


This evening is for those who enjoy laughing about the human condition without the cynicism or bitterness brought to the forefront by the stand-up comedian in the White House. Birbiglia is the real deal and seeing him in person is essential to getting the full effect of his comic brilliance. He appeals to the audience’s imagination, intelligence and emotional core. All the critical superlatives he’s received turn out to be well-deserved. - RECOMMENDED

He is one of the few people on the planet who can lay claim to spending time with Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler, Sandy Meisner, Allen Ginsberg, Andy Warhol, and Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, as well as so many other extraordinary people who refused to color inside the lines. He is always on the lookout for the original and the incisive.
