Mike Birbiglia (COL ’00) discusses Georgetown, fellow Hoyas’ urinary habits
NSO staple Mike Birbiglia (COL ’00) is in the midst of a nationwide tour, and in anticipation of his Saturday night performance at Warner Theater in D.C. he had a chat with Washington Post readers earlier this week.
While many of the questions were about his comedic work, quite a few Washingtonians used the chat as a chance to discuss Birbiglia’s time at Georgetown.
One reader claimed to be the runner-up in the “Funniest Person at Georgetown” contest the year Birbiglia won, another asked about his “theory of bisexuality,” which he developed while taking a women’s studies class at Georgetown, and someone else admitted her “friend” had a huge crush on him when they were in college together.
The best part of the chat, though, comes when a reader asks him for help controlling his fellow Hoyas’ urinary habits:
Washington, D.C.: Why are you so funny?
Also, can you get these Georgetown students to stop peeing on my front lawn?
Mike Birbiglia: I can’t vouch for those people. I never peed in anyone’s lawn while at GU, though I did once ride in a shopping cart.
Georgetown: We pee on everyone’s lawns.
Mike Birbiglia: Sounds like you do. Yes.
