If you’ve never seen/heard the comedy of Mike Birbiglia then you are doing yourself a disservice. A mainstay on the hit public radio show This American Life, Birbiglia tells autobiographical stories that tie into common human anxieties and are both touching and funny.
Well, it was only a matter of time before Birbiglia went the same route as Louie C.K. and got to turn his routines and thoughts into a visual narrative. Luckily for us, much like Louie C.K., Birbiglia seems to have made something fantastically funny and meaningful. The trailer for Birbiglia’s Sleepwalk With Me is a fantastic showcase of Birbiglia’s comedic sensibilities, and seems like it could be a surprisingly smart and touching examination of modern relationships and lives.
