If you live in the United States — literally, anywhere in the United States — there’s a pretty good chance that Mike Birbiglia will be telling jokes nearby.
The comedian/actor/director/storyteller, who most recently released the hit special My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, is extending a 30-city national tour to a whopping 100 city excursion across the country that should take up most of 2014, he told BuzzFeed.
The tour, called Thank God for Jokes, starts on January 15th in Traverse City, MI; then hops to two other stops in the state and then over to Kentucky and Salt Lake City before hitting stops on each coast.
While the initial list of dates didn’t include major metropolitan areas like Seattle and Chicago — where he filmed his last stand-up special and opened his directorial debut, Sleepwalk With Me, respectively — they will ultimately be added to the itinerary.
“They’re actually creating cities for the tour,” he joked. “It’s a comedy urban development program, where they’re inventing cities for me to do comedy in. They’re cobbling together groups of towns and then giving them city names and putting them on my tour.”
