Mike Birbiglia: The Old Man and the Pool

Off Sale

Old Man deftly uses comedy as a deep dive into death, demonstrating that when you stop thrashing around and exist in the moment, you float.

Birbiglia has a deft ability to hone a story to its most essential, impactful moments, imbuing his humor with heart.

On the heels of his award-winning Broadway show The New One, which made its West Coast premiere on the Ahmanson stage, comedian and storyteller Mike Birbiglia returns to Center Theatre Group with a tale of life, death, and a highly chlorinated YMCA pool. With his unique form of comedic storytelling, Birbiglia chronicles a coming-of-middle-age story that asks the big questions: Why are we here? What’s next? What happens when the items at the doctor’s office that you thought were decorative become functional?
