    Wow Mike is not actually bad. I actually stayed for the whole monologues during the past days. Would love to see him subbing whenever Jimmy catches something lol.

    Birbigs for the win!! Mike Birbiglia is quite possibly the nicest guy to ever hold a mic and make you laugh. Please check out his stand up specials, Thank God for Jokes, and The New One, and get to know his hilarious everyman stories. I know I’m not the only one delighted to see him reach a larger audience, and killing it as a stand in for Jimmy this week.
