'This is theatre at its purest and arguably its most effective. Birbiglia smashes to pieces the theory that neither humour nor humor can survive Transatlantic crossings.'
'Few comedians are such good company that you never want them to stop. The young Billy Connolly was one such; affable American Mike Birbiglia is another.'
'Perfectly crafted, exquisitely told, and very, very funny.'
'He draws everything back to his own life, keeping the audience in fits of laughter and tears along the way.'
