Is he Italian? Aesculapius75 10:44, 3 August 2005 (UTC)

Yes, he is. --Eirishis 17:12, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
Ah, Wikipedia. Always ready with quick responses to all your questions. --Savethemooses 21:22, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

This article is horribly written, did Joe Blogs write this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 12.15.7.70 (talk) 15:32, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

Mike Birbiglia is Italian. In a stand-up special he said so. Also, the surname 'Birbiglia' is an Italian name. This could be added to the page. TomUSA 02:27, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
Whatever happened with using a celebrity's full name on Wikipedia articles? Isn't just "Mike" somewhat too informal here?

Biribiglia may be "Italicized" from Biribilis, quite a common Greek surname if you type Biribilis in the search engine of Wikipaidia. Konstantina Biribili, Maria Biribili, Soula Biribili, Andrea Biribili, George Biribilis, Erwin Biribilis, Theodossios A. Biribilis......in case he ever wishes to construct a geneology tree. 124.185.185.30 (talk) 02:50, 27 February 2016 (UTC)

Suddenlink...[edit]

This is the Suddenlink guy correct? I'm watching Comedy Central Presents and I'm pretty sure this is the guy. He said the "You're bad. You should be a caveman," joke. —Preceding unsigned comment added by JRic1990 (talkcontribs) 06:04, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

The SuddenLink page has a section nameing him as the guy in the commercials, as well as a stream for each commercial. It doesnt give any additional information (money, time, total # of commercials, etc), but should still be added. 131.59.200.82 (talk) 16:32, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

downy promotion[edit]

Mike is currently doing a promotion for Downy where he sleeps in a window at Macy's. The event is being filmed live on the Downy facebook page. I'm sure whoever edits this page can find more sources and add material about it. --Ghostexorcist (talk) 15:29, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

"Accidental suicide"?[edit]

As defined Wikipedia's own page on the subject, "suicide" is the intentional causing of one's own death. Therefore, suicide cannot be accidental. I don't know how to properly do it, or I'd edit it myself. It should probably read something like "accidental death". Samu0034 (talk) 20:29, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
