birbig.jpgMike Birbiglia kicks off The Medium Man on Campus Tour Thursday, February 8th at his hometown college NYU. Mike has been featured on The Late Show with David Letterman as well as several specials on Comedy Central and is a regular on the Bob & Tom Morning Show.

It was just 4 years ago that Mike graduated from Georgetown University and moved to New York City, where he would be embraced by legendary talent booker Lucien Hold, The Comic Strip Live manager credited with discovering Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock and Adam Sandler. It was Hold who got Mike seen by The Letterman Show, where Mike would make his TV debut. Hold has said of Mike: "He's the first guy I've ever compared to Jerry Seinfeld." Mike's Letterman success catapulted him into a herd of TV appearances including his own highly rated special on Comedy Central. Seventeen Magazine has called Mike a "Voice of the Next Generation," The Onion has called him "unstintingly clever," and The New York Post just named him one of the "New Stars of 2005." People are predicting big things for Birbiglia. Last year, he played 300 shows in 40 different cities and his newsletter "Stuff I Wrote in My CVS Notebook" goes to thousands of people each month. -- Generously lifted from Mike's press bio.

Don't miss Mike, QLL has seen him several times and is a big fan. Check out clips from some of his shows here, here, and here.
