Don’t miss The Old Man & The Pool, a one-man comedy chronicling the coming-of-middle-age story of Mike Birbiglia, playing at Wyndham's Theatre for a limited run of four weeks.

What is The Old Man & The Pool about?

Follow the comic storytelling of Mike Birbiglia, a highly acclaimed comedian and actor asking life’s big questions through a series of amusing tales and clever one-liners.

Discover that laughter truly is the best medicine as Mike navigates the news that he has inherited his family’s cardiac issues and must reluctantly adopt a healthier lifestyle. He adamantly refuses, particularly when it comes to swimming, due to hilarious memories of an unforgettably smelly Massachusetts YMCA pool from his youth.

Seth Barrish’s show, which has seen huge success on the Broadway stage, features captivating anecdotes and a distinctive blend of dry-wit humour and innovative storytelling. Its reflections on life and morality, combined with amusing flashbacks promises a unique and hilarious experience that you won’t find in any other show.
