CC Insider favorite Mike Birbiglia gives a report of the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal on his website. Here‚Äôs an excerpt:
‚ÄúAt this point, I‚Äôm used to people messing with my name. I‚Äôm also used to having conversations with people in the TV industry who throw out a lot of generalizations. My manager introduced me to this guy he works with. And the 1st thing the guy says to me is ‚ÄúI think we may be able to do a Seinfeld thing with you,‚Äù which was fine, except that he hadn‚Äôt even seen my act. It‚Äôs like meeting a guy who‚Äôs holding a pencil and saying, ‚ÄúI think we may be able to do a Shakespeare thing with you.‚Äù
