“I’m going to tell you a story and it’s true… I always have to tell people that,” so asserts comedian-turned-playwright-turned-filmmaker Mike Birbiglia directly to the viewer at the outset of his autobiographically inspired, fictional feature debut. Birbiglia wears his incisive wit on his sleeve while portraying a cinematic surrogate. We are thrust into the tale of 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.
Based on the successful one-man show, SLEEPWALK WITH ME engages in the kind of passionate and personal storytelling that transfigures intimate anguish into comic art. 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 foray into the medium marks the invigorating emergence of a strong and poignant American voice, at once hilarious and heartbreaking.
“Birbiglia's deft, breezy treatment of a serious relationship disorder, as well as a serious neurological sleeping problem, jells wonderfully.”—Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter
“An endearing indie feature about the day-to-day indecisions and nocturnal perambulations of a commitment-phobic New Yorker”—Peter Debruge, Variety
