Comedian and award-winning film director Mike Birbiglia heads to Helium this weekend for a slew of shows.
Birbiglia, known for his film “Sleepwalk with Me” and multiple appearances on TV and radio, is in Western New York and ready to take the stage for three nights at Helium Comedy Club in Buffalo’s Cobblestone District.
Tickets for his Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows cost between $30 and $35, and are available through Helium’s website.

Birbiglia’s one-man shows “My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend” and “Sleepwalk With Me” earned him boatloads of praise from critics, and the film adaptation of the latter show went on to win the audience award at Sundance in 2012.
He’s also a regular contributor to “This American Life” and “The Bob and Tom Show,” and has appeared on late-night shows hosted by Conan O’Brien, David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon. The guy gets around when it comes to media.
Before getting comfortable at Heliem, Birbiglia’s been making his rounds at local colleges. He performed his stand-up routine at Niagara University on Tuesday and is appearing in Fredonia tonight. Apparently, he’s traveling the region without his driver’s license, by the way.
