The Old Man & The Pool in London

The Old Man and the Pool – By Broadway’s greatest comic storyteller

Meet Mike Birbiglia, a man who’s been described as ‘Broadway’s greatest comic storyteller’. He’s on stage in the West End for a limited run of his latest smash hit show, which comes to the West End for autumn 2023 at Wyndhams Theatre. A coming of age story with a difference, it takes us on an inspiring journey to explore the themes of life, death, and a YMCA pool containing far too much chlorine.

Quirky, fun, and a laugh a minute, this show is unusual in that it’s loved by every age, from twelve to a hundred years old and more. It inspired rave reviews in the USA, playing at sold out venues, and now it’s over here. You have just four weeks to experience it, from 12th September to 7th October 2023, so secure your Theatre tickets for The Old Man and the Pool nice and early to avoid disappointment.

As Mike himself said: “I love everything about London. I love being there. I love performing there. I love walking there. Last summer I got to take my daughter to see Matilda in the West End and it was one of the greatest days of her and my life. I hope that my show The Old Man and The Pool can be your Matilda. With your kids. Or your parents. Though my show is nothing like Matilda. And don’t bring your kids if they’re seven.

“But I’d like to think of my show as an event you could bring anyone age 12 through 112 to. It’s a series of jokes and stories about life and death and mortality that add up to a single story that will hopefully make you happier about your life than you were when you walked in. Sounds like what Matilda does, right? Maybe the shows do have something in common! In closing, if you see one show this fall in the West End, see Matilda. If you can see two shows, go to Matilda and The Old Man and The Pool. It’s got my heart and soul in it. And about 1,000 jokes. See you there, my London friends.”

What's the plot of The Old Man and the Pool?

This is Mike Birbiglia’s coming-of-middle-age story, and it asks all the BIG questions. Why are we here? What’s next? What happens when the stuff you noticed at the doctor’s office, which you thought was a load of decorative items, is revealed to have a horrid and very personal function?

New York Times calls this show the best comedy of the year, and we’re certain London audiences will feel the same. This is a really funny reminder that a failing body awaits every one of us, and in a crazy world laughter really is the best cure for life, the universe, and everything.

Who is The Old Man and the Pool for?

The Old Man and the Pool is for people aged 12 or more.
