That’s why I was so excited when he announced his new “Please Stop the Ride” stand up tour. What’s even better is he’ll be stopping right here in the Garden State!

Birbiglia wrote and starred in his films Sleepwalk With Me and Don’t Think Twice.

You may also recognize the comedian from his work in HBO’s Girls, Orange is the New Black, or Trainwreck.

He also makes a delightful appearance in the music video for Taylor Swift’s song “Anti-Hero” as one of Taylor's fictional sons.

The show takes place on Friday Sept. 13 at 7 pm.
