    Mike Birbiglia: The Old Man and the Pool Tickets

    The award-winning comedian and expert storyteller returns to Broadway with stories of life, death and coming of middle-age.

    A coming of middle-age story

    Comedian Mike Birbiglia returns to Broadway with a brand new one-man show about life, death and a chlorinated YMCA swimming pool. Find out why laughter really is the best medicine with The Old Man and the Pool at the Beaumont Theater.

    Why are we here? What comes after? Am I finally about to find out what all those weird instruments at the doctor’s office are? These are the questions Birbiglia asks as he muses over his life to date in this fun and relatable coming of middle-age story.

    The Old Man and the Pool on Broadway follows the show’s sold out runs in Berkeley, Chicago and Los Angeles, where it struck a chord with (and tickled the funny bones of) audiences, whether they were 12 or 112.

    It is the latest project from Mike Birbigilia, who is known for contributing to This American Life and The Moth and his award-winning feature directorial debut Sleepwalk with Me, based on a stand-up show of the same name.
