Mike Birbiglia at Albany Funny Bone

mike birbiglia

Comedian/actor/filmmaker Mike Birbiglia is set to play a series of shows at the Funny Bone at Crossgates January 6-7. Tickets are on sale now -- they're $25.

The shows are part of Birbiglia's "Working It Out" tour. Blurbage from the initial tour announcement in November:

New hour of comedy to work out. I've never been more excited about standup in my whole career. I have this sense that anything is possible and that I'm a better writer than when I started. I've written about 40 or 50 pages of raw standup that MAY OR MAY NOT work. ...
These "Working It Out" shows will be raw, semi-improvised, unfinished. When I watch my favorite comics like Chris Rock or Dave Chappelle or Louis CK at the Comedy Cellar- THESE ARE THE SETS I LIKE TO SEE. I like seeing things in early stages. It might be what you're into. It might not. That said, I promise that my heart will be in it and sometimes my writing has to catch up to my heart.

There are four shows lined up at the Crossgates Funny Bone. We're guessing at least a few will sell out. So if you'd like to go, it's probably a good idea to get tickets sooner rather than later.

Seems like they've put together realistic plans, though I wonder whether the proximity to the ESP ramps would be a deterrent to finding a residential developer. I'd really like to see that Trailways Building kept. We have so few century buildings in Albany that I'd really we rather keep them when we can. And this building is not at all shy about advertising its era. E-Comm 6, however...well, I won't cry if it comes down.
