The Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza Foundation presents Mike Birbiglia'S 'MY GIRLFRIEND'S BOYFRIEND' in the Fred Kavli Theatre at 8:00 pm on Friday, November 2, 2012.
Comedian Mike Birbiglia is extending the nationwide tour of his award-winning Off-Broadway show, My Girlfriend's Boyfriend to theatres and performing arts centers in 28 additional cities. The show won the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Performance, and was nominated for the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards. The New York Times called "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend" "ridiculously enjoyable." It was named a critic's pick by The New York Times, Time Out New York, and New York Magazine. In My Girlfriend's Boyfriend, the storytelling comedian shares a lifetime of romantic blunders and miscues that most adults would spend a lifetime trying to forget. On this painfully honest and hysterical journey, Mike struggles to find reason in an area where it may be impossible to find-love.
Mike Birbiglia's My Girlfriend's Boyfriend tour marks Birbiglia's second tour taking place exclusively in theatres and performing arts centers. Birbiglia has starred in three Comedy Central specials, released three hit CDs for Comedy Central Records, one of which was named one of the "Best Comedy Albums of the Decade" by The Onion AV Club. Birbiglia makes regular radio appearances on The Bob & Tom Show as well as on Public Radio International's This American Life. In 2011, Birbiglia directed and starred in a feature film adaptation of Sleepwalk With Me, which won the Best of NEXT Audience Award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The film was acquired by IFC Films and was released in movie theaters nationwide last August.
