why watch the old man & the pool

Mike Birbiglia is the man behind the best comedy of the year, The Old Man & The Pool. Sleepwalk with Me, My Girlfriend's Boyfriend, Thank God For Jokes, and The New One are just a few of Birbiglia's critically praised one-man shows. His performance in The New One got him the Drama Desk Award and the Outer Critics Circle Award, while his performance in My Girlfriend's Boyfriend won him the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show. Additionally, by turning his play Sleepwalk with Me into a movie in which he also starred, Birbiglia proved his directorial abilities.

Birbiglia has made memorable cameos in films like The Fault in Our Stars, A Man Called Otto, and Trainwreck. With performances in popular series like ‘Orange is the New Black’ and ‘Billions’, he has also made his mark on television. Now, after selling out performances across the United States, comedian and storyteller Mike Birbiglia brings his most recent one-man show to the West End for only 4 weeks. Purchase The Old Man & The Pool tickets right away!

The Old Man & The Pool is a compelling show that is heading to London straight from the Broadway stage. A coming-of-middle-age story shows the audience glimpses of Birbiglia's life as he tells entertaining stories peppered with flashbacks and sharp one-liners. The Old Man & The Pool is a show about ageing, memory, death, and loss, but it is also inescapably a show about working out.

The Story

In ‘The Old Man & The Pool’, Mike takes you through his coming-of-middle-age journey, pondering the profound questions of existence, the future, and the quirky realisation that mundane doctor's office items can turn functional as we age. This poignant tale of life, mortality, and the hilariously chlorinated YMCA pool strikes a deep chord with audiences, earning rave reviews and consistently selling out shows across the US.

With its side-splitting humour, the play serves as a delightful reminder for all those navigating the challenges of ageing bodies in a chaotic world, showing us that laughter truly is the best medicine. Book your The Old Man & The Pool tickets for a delightful evening!
