Sleepwalk With Me


Winner of a 2012 Audience Award at Sundance, comedian Mike Birbiglia wrote, directed and stars in this sincere and hilarious autobiographical film, based on his successful off-Broadway show and bestselling book. It’s also the first movie co-written by Ira Glass and co-produced by This American Life. Birbiglia wears his incisive wit on his sleeve while portraying his cinematic surrogate: a burgeoning stand-up comedian struggling with the stress of a stalled career, a stale relationship threatening to race out of control, and the wild episodes of severe sleepwalking he is desperately trying to ignore. Funny, insightful and often painfully direct, Sleepwalk With Me engages in the kind of passionate and personal storytelling that transforms intimate anguish into comic art. Sleepwalk With Me also features a stellar supporting cast including Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under), Carol Kane (Taxi), James Rebhorn (Meet the Parents) and Cristin Milioti (30 Rock), as well as a “who’s who” sampling of some of today’s hottest comics, including Marc Maron, Kristen Schaal, Wyatt Cenac, Jesse Klein, Henry Phillips and David Wain.
