Sound of the Day: What I Should Have Said

I have now heard the following bit on This American Life and the Moth probably 37 times. It’s Mike Birbiglia, a comedian, telling a funny (He is a comedian, after all.) story about an awkward comedy gig. I don’t get tired of it, because being someone who likes to think he can tell stories, I learn a lot just from the technique. I pay attention to the wording, the descriptions, the side trips and the conclusions he makes about what he did. If you’re not into that, I think you’ll enjoy it anyway. It’s a very funny story.
