Mike Birbiglia headlines MASS MoCA’s High Mud Comedy Festival, the museum’s annual mud season yuk-fest, which returns to North Adams stacked with comedy-club kings and queens, funny film, uncommon workshops, half-brewed beer tastings, mocking museum tours (and whatever else we can think to poke fun at). Storytelling funny man and This American Life regular Mike Birbiglia is joined by comedic songstress Nellie McKay and former Saturday Night Live castmember Sasheer Zamata’s Party Time!, with more comedic talent to be announced soon. High Mud will deliver a thousand laughs a minute during two nights of stand-up in MASS MoCA’s Hunter Center. Come early for an afternoon of comedy adventures. This is mud season in the Berkshires — we celebrate!
