April 20: Mike Birbiglia at the Wells Fargo Center


Birbiglia? It’s Italian. But not real Italian—more like “Olive Garden” Italian, as Mike Birbiglia likes to describe himself. This comedian makes everyone else’s uncomfortable moments in life look like minor, silly misunderstandings when he talks about his experiences. A regular contributor on NPR’s This American Life, this one-man show keeps the crowds feeling sarcastically satisfied with his outlooks on life’s experiences. His shows “Sleepwalk with Me” and “My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend” have won and been nominated for many awards as an outstanding solo act, and “Sleepwalk with Me” was recently turned into a film that won the audience award at the Sundance Music Festival. Come watch Mike talk about the embarrassing escapades that most people would rather forget on Friday, April 20, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $30–$45. 707.546.3600.
