Mike Birbiglia is a standup comic who in 2002 became one of the youngest comics ever to appear on "Late Night with David Letterman." He's parlayed his wildly succesful "Secret Public Journal," which collects true stories from his life, into a new special, called "What I Should Have Said Was Nothing." Bonus: Mike talks with me about the CBS pilot he recently shot (MP3).
