Great cast, good idea, great cameo(?)
8 October 2017 | by Miles-10See all my reviews

Good things about this movie:

Lauren Ambrose. Although she makes it harder to understand why Mike does not want to marry her.

Mike Birbiglia. A nice, lovable guy who is also wickedly funny. (More like a naughty kid, maybe?)

James Rebhon and Carol Kane as Mike's parents. They love Mike and because they do they nudge.

Mike is a failed stand-up comic who tells flat jokes and wonders why his comedy career is going nowhere. Then out of desperation he takes lousy offers around the country for very little money, but he learns to use his real life as the basis for his new and improved material - especially exploring his doubts about his eight year relationship with the woman he loves.

Bonus: Because of his sleep-walking problem, Mike starts listening to a book on tape by Dr. Wm. C. Dement on sleep disorders. At one point, Dr. Dement (the real one???) makes a memorable cameo. (Yes, everyone makes fun of Dr. Dement's name, and so does Mike.)
