You Had To Be There #100: Mike Birbiglia


This week, Sara and Nikki just barely evade the censors and then react to Nikki’s illicit half hour special gifts. To celebrate their first triple-digit episode, the ladies entertain one of their biggest guests yet: Mike Birbiglia (@birbigs). In Sara’s humble office, the trio kick around some themes Mike covered in his recent movie Sleepwalk with Me, like crazy dreams and on-stage stress. Later, they get to some he left out too, like the isolation of marriage and the optimism of cell division. Plus Kanye. They really cover it all. Talking Pee this week singles out The Ben Show, that new Baumbach movie, a positive Internet interaction, and Maria Bamford’s comedian-approved comedy. Here’s to the next hundred.

And be sure to watch Nikki & Sara LIVE Tuesdays at 11pm/10c on MTV because you deserve it.
