Two River Theater To Host "The New One" by Mike Birbiglia In July

(RED BANK, NJ) -- Two River Theater, under the leadership of Artistic Director John Dias and Managing Director Michael Hurst, announces a special summer event: six performances of The New One, written and performed by Mike Birbiglia, prior to its New York premiere. Performances run July 18 through July 22.

Mike Birbiglia is a comedian and storyteller who has performed in front of audiences worldwide, from the Sydney Opera House to Carnegie Hall. His most recent shows, My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend and Thank God for Jokes, were both filmed for Netflix. Mike has released four albums for Comedy Central Records, including My Secret Public Journal Live, which was named one of the “Best Comedy Albums of the Decade” by The Onion AV Club.

In addition to performing live, Birbiglia is an author and filmmaker who wrote, directed, and starred in the acclaimed films Sleepwalk with Me and Don’t Think Twice. His book, Sleepwalk with Me and Other Painfully True Stories, was a New York Times bestseller and a finalist for the Thurber Prize for American Humor. As an actor, Birbiglia has appeared on Orange Is the New BlackInside Amy Schumer and Girls, as well as in the films TrainwreckThe Fault in Our Stars and Popstar. Birbiglia currently lives in Brooklyn with his wife Jen.

Neil Genzlinger of The New York Times called Birbiglia’s recent show Thank God for Jokes “the best night I’ve spent in a theater in a very long time.” In The New One, the award-winning comedian approaches an entirely new subject in a new way with the same heart and humor we’ve come to expect. Do not miss the new one. It may be the best one.

The New One has toured to more than 40 cities around the country, with numerous sold-out shows. The run time of The New One is 70 minutes. Patrons must be 16 and up to attend performances.
