All Music Guide - David Jeffries
The title of Mike Birbiglia's 2006 release refers to what a lightweight he is. Couple drinks and he's doing magic tricks and dancing, but without the booze he's a guy who likes biographies, has serious opinions about wildlife, and is really good at drinking hot chocolate. That is what's great about Two Drink Mike, Birbiglia projects a humble attitude that's approachable, endearing even, but it leads to material that can be Steven Wright-strange and just as hilarious. Course Wright could be from Mars while Birbiglia is the weird kid-next-door grown-up and adjusted to the world outside just enough to get by. Imagine a protected kid from the suburbs devouring BET's hip-hop ...

Couple drinks and he's doing magic tricks and dancing, but without the booze he's a guy who likes biographies, has serious opinions about wildlife, and is really good at drinking hot chocolate. That is what's great about Two Drink Mike, Birbiglia projects a humble attitude that's approachable, endearing even, but it leads to material that can be Steven Wright-strange and just as hilarious. Course Wright could be from Mars while Birbiglia is the weird kid-next-door grown-up and adjusted to the world outside just enough to get by. Imagine a protected kid from the suburbs devouring BET's hip-hop programming and you've got an idea of how Birbiglia relates. He's enthusiastic about the bling-bling lifestyle he sees on MTV Cribs but worries the rappers are dying inside and crying out for attention with their rims and grills. Gay cats, why parents can't understand computers, and the cockiness of handing Kleenex out before funerals are hot topics, and if it seems at first like Birbiglia is just a stream of consciousness guy like Wright; the trick of Two Drink Mike is how well it flows before exiting on a handful of hilarious musical numbers. Containing mostly different material than the CD, the bonus DVD of older performances is clumsier and features a more straight-laced looking, not as comfortable performer. You can study a comedian honing his craft by analyzing the two discs, or you can just sit back and listen to the arrival of stand-up's next big thing.

    Why listen to redneck comedians talking about hunting, toenail fungus, and incest when you can listen to Mike Birbiglia talk about things that are funny?

    What can be said about Two Drink Mike that hasn't been said about Mother Teresa and the new season of 24? It's changing the world. His comedy is far supperior to that of certain cable guys, I won't name names, and is also better than guys with puppets. A couple of times on Two Drink Mike, Mr. Birbiglia also demonstrates musical talent on his guitar that can be compared to Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Van Halen. Why listen to plain music or plain comedy when you can get both, put together on one delicious compact disk? The only reason I didn't give this 6 stars was because the CD was too circular, and he wasn't wearing roller skates while recording it. I don't know for sure, but I'm pretty sure. It didn't sound like it. Also because there was no 6th star. So if you're in the mood to hear about gay cats (and we all are), pick up this fantastic CD. You won't be sorry.

    SO Funny!

    This CD is hilarious! I laughed without stopping. Every single track is SO funny. You'll listen to it a lot, and you'll laugh every time. The only thing funnier is seeing Mike Birbiglia in person.
