Mike Birbiglia and Ira Glass’s movie Sleepwalk With Me opens in a little over two weeks and they really want you to come. I mean, you should go, because Birbiglia and Glass are great and funny story tellers and Sleepwalk With Me is touching, hilarious and entertaining. But if you weren’t convinced, Birbiglia and Glass have announced they’ll be doing everything at the New York screening at IFC Center on Aug. 24 and 25. “Everything.” But probably just a Q & A.
The film follows Birbiglia as a Brooklyn bartender, at his wit’s end as he aspires to be a stand-up comedian. When his sister’s wedding causes him to evaluate the terms of his relationship with his long term girlfriend, played by Lauren Ambrose, the stress results in Birbiglia’s sleepwalking, acting everything out that he’s dreaming, which proves a real danger. Carol Kane, Kristen Schaal, David Wain, Marc Maron and Wyatt Cenac stud the cast.
