Comedian Mike Birbiglia is kicking off 2012 with an all-new tour in theaters and performing arts centers throughout the U.S. over the next few months, taking his award-winning Off-Broadway show My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend 22 cities.

My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend focuses on the many blunders and mishaps that have plagued Birbiglia’s love life. The show is said to be painfully honest, as much of the comic’s material is, leading you through the awkward situations he has found himself in through the years. Birbiglia’s story telling has garnered him much success and acclaim through the past few years with his stand-up albums Two Drink Mike and My Secret Public Journal: Live as well as his bestselling book Sleepwalk With Me (based on his first award-winning off-Broadway show), which has been turned into a feature film premiering this year at the Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 23.

“I loved performing a four-month run in New York,” said Birbiglia, “but I’m even more excited to take the show on a series of one-night stands in cities around the country, because anything can happen in a show like this. After a preview show in Montreal a man even proposed to his girlfriend in my presence. Everyone was crying, and I felt like crying because I felt like the man had missed the point I was trying to make in the show.”
