Here's a funny ass trailer for an autobiographical romantic comedy from comedian Mike Birbiglia called Sleepwalk With Me. Birbiglia co-wrote, directed, and stars in the film that tells the story of an aspiring comedian who's been in a long relationship, feeling the pressures of marriage, and to top things off... he sleepwalks.
The movie won the Audience Award at this year's Sundance Film Festival, and it also stars Lauren Ambrose, Carol Kane, James Rebhorn, and Marc Maron.
Here's the synopsis:
Winner of a 2012 Audience Award at Sundance, comedian Mike Birbiglia wrote, directed and stars in this sincere and hilarious film, based on his off-Broadway show and bestselling book. It’s also the first movie co-written by Ira Glass and co-produced by “This American Life.” The story: when an aspiring stand-up fails to express his true feelings about his girlfriend and his stalled career, his anxiety comes out in increasingly funny and dangerous sleepwalking incidents. SLEEPWALK WITH ME features Lauren Ambrose (“Six Feet Under”), Carol Kane (“Taxi”), James Rebhorn (“Meet the Parents”), Cristin Milioti (star of Broadway’s “Once”), plus comedians Marc Maron, Kristen Schaal, Wyatt Cenac, Jesse Klein, Henry Phillips and David Wain.
The movie comes out on August 24th, and I'm looking forward to seeing it!
