Refusing To Sleep Through Fame
It still feels like one day his fame simply arrived, and when it happened, we all knew. Since that day, the "This American Life" contributor, author, actor, director and — oh yeah, comedian — Mike Birbiglia has only gained more notoriety. His book Sleepwalk With Me & Other Painfully True Stories hit the best-seller lists for nonfiction. His one-man play, an honor usually reserved for life-long industry talents, grabbed nearly perfect reviews. Then his story about growing up, facing his fears and becoming a more successful and honest human as a result, Sleepwalk With Me was turned into a movie. And it was great. He’s got a new one-man show, My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, and it’s at the Winspear Opera House (2403 Flora St.) for one night only on Saturday. Tickets for this 8 p.m. show start at $25. Buy them at attpac.org.
