Thank God for Jokes carries a theme close to Birbiglia’s life experience: humor itself. In his review for The New York Times, Neil Genzlinger wrote that the show’s chief concerns are “what a joke is; the purposes of joke-telling; the limits, if any, on what to joke about and where.” He also called the show “an indescribably ridiculous collection of anecdotes and asides that miraculously blend into a whole.”
