What do Mike Birbiglia and Terry Gross have in common? I mean, besides the fact they are the whitest people I’ve ever listened to. Answer: they are now both the stars of a new short film that hit the internet this weekend!
Mike Birbiglia, who is among a short list of incredibly accomplished and current working comedians, stars opposite of Terry Gross, the host of NPR’s popular talk show Fresh Air. Not only does Birbiglia star but he also wrote and directed the film which was produced by This American Life’s Ira Glass
The film involves Birbigilia being interviewed by Gross duing her radio show. However, instead of calling it a day, Mike decides to tag along with Gross (much to her dismay). The movie, while incredibly short, is clever and wickedly funny as Mike discovers how incredibly similar Miss Gross is on and off the air.
Oh yeah, and guns are also involved. GUNS! ON NPR?!?! Insanity I know. So sit back relax and let Mike and Terry do what they do best. Terry will captivate and make you eager to listen, and Mike will make you feel incredibly awkward. Enjoy!
