Rabbit Rabbit presents
Mike Birbiglia: ‘The New One’

Leicester Square Theatre on 8th June

Multi award-winning American comedian Mike Birbiglia returns to London for four nights only at The Leicester Square Theatre on  8  June 2018, with his brand-new show ‘The New One’

Tickets go on sale at 9am on 15th March.

Neil Genzlinger of The New York Times called Mike Birbiglia’s recent show Thank God For Jokes “the best night I’ve spent in a theatre 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 humour we’ve come to expect. This show looks at when it’s the right time to settle down and have children, how to deal with the drama of sleep-walking and tales of what happened when he checked out Amsterdam’s red light district.

Do not miss the new one. It may be the best one.

Thank God for Jokes experienced widespread success in the US, completing a huge 100-city tour, and Birbiglia then took the show off-Broadway to The Lynn Redgrave Theater. Mike Birbiglia first burst onto the scene in 2012 with his Sundance award-winningdirectorial debut Sleepwalk With Me. In recent years his work started appearing on public radio’s This American Life, where he began a meaningful collaboration with host and producer Ira Glass.
