  • There's a delightful optimism that Birbiglia exudes in his work that's on full display in Thank God For Jokes.

  • A self-described "niche" brand, Birbiglia ambles around the stage and lands almost every joke while discussing "late people" versus "on-time people," the challenge of scratching an itch while handcuffed, and how he became a Muppets villain.

  • Now, focusing solely on jokes and paring back his storytelling delivery style, Birbiglia's Thank God for Jokes is finally everything for everyone; assuming everyone is a lover of genuinely perfect comedy.

    Jul 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This special is so comprehensive that it is somehow perfect, then, that the real topic of Thank God For Jokes is the very idea of jokes themselves, and what it means to be a comedian.

  • With a craftsman this assured, we could definitely thank God for jokes in general, or we could cut out the middleman by just thanking Birbiglia for the jokes he chooses to tell.
