I’m excited about the release of comedian Mike Birbiglia’s film, Sleepwalk With Me. Like many people, I first came across Birbiglia’s easygoing charm in an August 2008 This American Life episode entitled Fear of Sleep. This American Life included Birbiglia’s tale of a sleep disorder and the havoc it created on his personal life. The story came from his one-man show, which also formed the basis for the movie.
I feel fortunate that Sleepwalk With Me is opening on August 31 at the Aquarius in Palo Alto. Ira Glass co-wrote the script and This American Life is asking its fans to make sure the film has as wide a distribution as possible. It has a 6.5 rating right now on IMDB, which isn’t great for an independent flick, but I like the people involved enough to make sure and give it a go. As you can see from the trailer, there’s even a part in it for Marc Maron!
