Story


Based on comedian-turned-playwright-turned-filmmaker Mike Birbiglia's successful one-man show, SLEEPWALK WITH ME turns passionate and personal storytelling into comic art. Birbiglia directed, co-wrote and stars as a burgeoning stand-up comedian struggling with the stress of a stalled career, a stale relationship threatening to race out of his control, and the wild spurts of severe sleepwalking he is desperate to ignore. Produced and co-written by Ira Glass (NPR's "This American Life"), SLEEPWALK WITH ME features a stellar supporting cast that includes Lauren Ambrose ("Six Feet Under"), Carol Kane (Taxi), James Rebhorn (Meet the Parents), Cristin Milioti ("30 Rock"), and a sampling from the who's who of today's stand-up scene. Bursting with sincerity, Mike Birbiglia's first foray into filmmaking marks the emergence of a hilarious and heartbreaking new voice.

“..warm, perceptive debut should win over auds, but loses some of the specificity that made his one-man show so personal..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..charmed a morning packed-house, not an easy room to play..”
by Duane Byrge [Hollywood Reporter]
