Poor sleepwalking comedian Mike Birbiglia! Macy's teamed up with Downy to stick him in a window at the Herald Store flagship store last week during the nastiest, slushiest, grayest period in all January, and now, six days later, he's still there. At least today he gets to hang out with Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter, fellow comedians (and guys named Mike) from the cult shows The State and Stella. Also, if we're being honest, we might as well note that whenever we check in on the live feed of Birbiglia's window experience, he's never actually there. Even so, we're sure he's thrilled to be done soon, and for his sake we hope he gets free detergent for life.
