Things aren't going well for aspiring comedian Matt Pandamiglio (played by co-writer-director Mike Birbiglia) in the self-deprecating comedy that would make both Larry David and Louis C.K. proud, "Sleepwalk With Me."
Matt's just been strong-armed into moving in with his ultra-supportive, under-appreciated girlfriend (the gingerly cool Lauren Ambrose), who wants marriage and a baby carriage. He's also not exactly in high demand at the local comedy club — his best opportunities there are mopping the bathroom floors, serving drinks and filling in as a comic when the headliner is late or doesn't show up. He's the standup comic version of an aspiring boxer who serves as a punching bag for the guy training to win that champion belt.
There's also one major issue about Matt that becomes the giant pink elephant in the room — he suffers from a rare sleepwalking disorder. And he doesn't just say a few words before eventually »
