UsedWigs Radio Interview with Mike Birbiglia

Comedian Mike Birbiglia brings his new show “Sleepwalk with Me” to Philadelphia’s Zellerbach Theatre this Friday, October 10th. This is a sneak peak performance before his big off-Broadway debut at the Bleecker Street Theatre in NYC starting October 17th. Mike is hysterical, so see him now before Big Time Fame snatches him up and forces him to make a bad movie with Jessica Alba.

Jeff chatted with Mike via cell phone as he trekked through the busy streets of Manhattan, dodging cars, taking taxis and dropping impressive names in his wake.
