Mike Birbiglia turns life's quirky episodes into soaring career For comedian Mike Birbiglia , life's awkward moments make for great stand-up. His monologues on dysfunctional relationships, a fear of bears and episodes of sleepwalking have taken him from obscure comedy clubs to his own movie premiere. As WGLT's Daniel Hajek reports, Birbiglia's last stop on this year's tour is at the Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, where he'll be performing his off-Broadway show, "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend."



Listen to this clip from This American Life for more on Birbiglia's bit about the time he jumped out of a two-story window while sleepwalking.
