Synopsis: A burgeoning stand-up comedian struggles with the stress of a stalled career, a stale relationship, and the wild spurts of severe sleepwalking he is desperate to ignore.
Release Date: August 24, 2012
Thoughts: I’ve seen star Mike Birbiglia make the rounds on the talk show circuit when his off-Broadway show of Sleepwalk With Me opened and was an unexpected hit. What I gathered from his interviews and bit of the show that were featured is that he’s a natural storyteller with good presence. While not every show is easily adaptable to the stage, Birbiglia’s easy-going delivery and structured show could be one of the rare examples that would probably translate well to the silver screen. Gathering a nice ensemble of familiar faces this might be a nice, um, sleeper hit if the festival circuit buzz is to be believed.
