The stand-up comedy show will start streaming on Netflix next week.
Netflix has revealed a trailer for its latest original comedy special, 'Mike Birbiglia: Thank God For Jokes.' The show will premiere exclusively through Netflix on February 28.
Mike Birbiglia declares that a joke should never end with ‘I’m joking.’ In his all-new comedy, Birbiglia tiptoes hilariously through the minefield that is modern-day joke-telling. Join Mike as he learns that the same jokes that elicit laughter have the power to produce tears, rage, and a whole lot of getting yelled at. Ultimately it's a show that asks, “How far should we go for the laugh?”
