The other day, Mike Birbiglia called me. It's always a pleasure to hear from Mike, who's just as nice a guy in real life as he seems on stage, but in this case, he had a specific issue that needed addressing.
He'd just heard Kasper Hauser's This American Life parodies. His question was simple: "Are they as funny in real life as they are on these audio bits?"
Yes. They are.
"So, do you think they might want to open for me in San Francisco?"
Yes, I'm sure they would.
"Do you have their number?"
Yes, I do.
And it was settled.
Kasper Hauser are opening for Mike at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco on October 19th.
Be there, or be square.
