This past week on The Moth Radio Hour: Mike Birbiglia (Sleepwalk with Me) goes through a breakup on a remote island, two women meet by chance on a dark street and share secrets, a father admits he was not quite ready for a second child, and a live calf shows up for Thanksgiving dinner. 

Every day between now and when it closes, we’re going to be featuring a super cool item you can bid on in this year’s Moth Ball Auction! Today, you can see longtime Moth-favorite Mike Birbiglia on the most celebrated stage in the world.

Moth favorite Mike Birbiglia has performed his hit show, My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, more than 300 times on three continents. This is your chance to see the final ever performance of the critically acclaimed production at the storied Carnegie Hall. 

The New York Times called My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend "ridiculously enjoyable to listen to" andTime Out New York described Mike as a “seasoned pro who skillfully plays his audience like a fiddle made out of funny bones.”

Happy Valentine’s Day, storytellers!

  • Our artistic director Catherine Burns on a special Moth night, 10/16
  • Jonathan Ames of Bored to Death on 10/18
