Selected Shorts: Jokes & Poems with Mike Birbiglia and J. Hope Stein


Comedian Mike Birbiglia and poet J. Hope Stein bring their dynamic partnership and unique observations on life to Selected Shorts for an evening of hilarious, big-hearted, poignant short stories, poetry, and, of course, a joke or two! Featuring performances by Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle), Carmen Lynch (The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon), Andrea Martin (Evil), and Kaneza Schaal (Cartography).

"Mike Birbiglia and Jen Stein are the best collaborators since Emily Dickinson teamed up with her long-winded comedian friend." ―John Mulaney
