Critic Reviews for Mike Birbiglia: My Girlfriend's Boyfriend

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (6)

  • My Girlfriend's Boyfriend has a through-line story of how the comedian and his wife eventually decided to get married despite not believing in marriage, and it is such a worked-through, complete piece that is both moving and incredibly funny.

  • A charming, confessional storytelling show, taped at an intimate Seattle theatre. One for a Sunday afternoon.

  • Although "Boyfriend" superficially resembles a meandering stand-up concert documentary, Birbiglia's stage shows are much more than that... he's actually closer to monologuist and performance artist Spalding Gray than, say, Jerry Seinfeld.

    Jul 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • ... a deeply personal reflection that trades moments of complete sincerity for crazy, across-the-stage antics reminiscent of Sam Kinison.

    Jul 11, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The special is an often painfully honest look at Birbiglia's love life in all its awkward glory which marries well with his gentle humour, resulting in an absolute winner.

    Jul 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The result is a masterful one-man show that cements Birbiglia's reputation as one of contemporary comedy's ultimate storytellers.
