Mike Birbiglia Shares His ‘Worst I Ever Bombed’ Story


Here’s the second episode of “Worst I Ever Bombed,” a new web series from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in which a different comedian shares their most awful comedy performance story each episode. SNL’s Cecily Strong did the first installment, and this time around, the guest is stand-up Mike Birbiglia, who shares the story of a gig at a charity golf tournament gone wrong. Birbiglia also told this story on his 2007 album My Secret Public Journal Live, but it feels much more intense with him whispering it straight into a camera in a hushed voice in a hallway.
