Mike Birbiglia: The Old Man and the Pool Reviews

GRADE A! The artful storyteller Mike Birbiglia is EXCELLENT at his craft, and in The Old Man and the Pool, the comedian is AT THE TOP OF HIS GAME. I felt connected to him. Hilarious observations unfold into tales that are charming and gripping. You never feel like he’s performing a bit, but rather LIKE YOU’RE THROWING BACK A BEER WITH YOUR FUNNIEST FRIEND.
Entertainment Weekly
RICH THEMATIC material, refracted through a PRECISE COMIC MIND.
Los Angeles Times
The core of Mike Birbiglia’s charm is, he’s FAVORITE-PAIR-OF-JEANS COMFORTABLE, and REMARKABLY SKILLED at finding profundity in subjects well within arm’s reach. The Old Man and the Pool feels like catching up with an old friend – YOU NEVER WANT HIM TO SHUT UP.
Variety

Summary

One of the greatest comedic storytellers, at the top of his game. On the heels of his award-winning show The New One, Mike Birbiglia returns to Broadway with a coming-of-middle-age story about when life takes a dive – into a highly-chlorinated YMCA pool. Propelled by his singular, insightful voice and everyman style, Mike Birbiglia: The Old Man & the Pool is a wildly hilarious and deeply moving play that offers “a galvanic, endearing and very funny meditation on mortality – deftly using comedy to demonstrate that when you stop thrashing around and exist in the moment – you float.” (Chicago Sun-Times)
