Interview: Philosopher King Mike Birbiglia of ‘Don’t Think Twice’

3 hours ago | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – When comedian/writer/director Mike Birbiglia is in his element, as during the interviews he conducted at The iO Theater in Chicago, he is relaxed and ardently philosophical. He has written and directed a new film, “Don’t Think Twice,” which is about a improvisation comedy troupe, but it’s also about life.

“Don’t Think Twice” – besides being a clever play on the famous Bob Dylan song title – is essentially about the stages of life, and how we react to our own ambitions. The members of the comedy troupe – portrayed by (clockwise in the picture below, starting top left) Mike Birbiglia, Kate Miccuci, Chris Gethard, Gillian Jacobs, Keegan-Michael Key and Tami Sagner – are at a crossroads in their professional and personal lives, and have to deal with the sudden uptick of fame to one of their members.

26 May 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church reviews the seventh and eighth episodes of Person of Interest season 5…

Since Tuesday’s Person of Interest block was actually two episodes together, I’d thought it’d be better to review them as one since they both shared similar themes and focused heavily on Fusco’s investigation and Shaw’s escape from Samaritan’s clutches. ‘Qso’ and ‘Reassortment’ were both good hours that elevated Samaritan’s threat level while revealing a bit more about its ultimate plan.
