Watch: Mike Birbiglia and Terry Gross – “2 Fresh 2 Furious”
Part of This American Life's Live Theater Event.
Earlier this evening, iconic NPR show This American Life brought its radio program to the stage of the Skirball Center in New York—and to theaters across the U.S., Canada, and Australia.
In addition to a troop of modern dancers, tales of Tig Notaro’s celebrity encounters, and David Sedaris looking particularly made up for the occasion (no spoilers –there’s a repeat performance this Tuesday and portions will end up on the radio), was a short film by Mike Birbiglia. In it, the comedian-turned actor (his film Sleepwalk With Me is due out this August) gets to know Fresh Air host Terry Gross in a very intimate way. Check out the hilarious clip below.
