Sleepwalk with Me

Written by Mike Birbiglia, Joe Birbiglia

Directed by Mike Birbiglia, Seth Barrish

USA, 2012

Fans of Mike Birbiglia’s stand up and of his appearances on This American Life will already be familiar with some of Sleepwalk with Me’s material. The film follows aspiring stand up comedian Matt Pandamiglio (a thinly disguised version of himself) as he struggles with a dead end job, difficulties with his comedy and a relationship that has reached a plateau. If that wasn’t enough, he suddenly, for the first time in his life, begins to sleepwalk. He soon discovers that he may be suffering from Rapid Eye Movement Behaviour Disorder. This extremely rare condition causes him to act out whatever he is dreaming about with dire consequences to himself and others. At one point, the condition leads him to jump out of a hotel window.
