Mike Birbiglia on telling stories
“I always ask people, ‘What’s the story you don’t want to tell anyone?’ And, weirdly, that is the story you want to tell on stage,” Birbiglia says during a recent phone chat with Fast Company. “It’s the story that you’re so reluctant to tell that the audience can feel it in the room. They know, because they have stories they don’t want to tell. I think that when someone does that right, there’s an immediate empathy and the audience is more willing to go to different places, because it’s uncomfortable. I like to think of great storytelling as you’re telling secrets to the audience, because everyone loves secrets.”
