COSTUME DESIGN BY: Ciera Wells MUSIC SUPERVISION BY: Anthony Roman & Lilah Wilson COMPANIES: IFC Films, Bedrocket Entertainment, Official Comedy, WBEZ Chicago's 'This American Life', Secret Public Productions ABOUT: "I'm going to tell you a story and it's true... I always have to tell people that," so asserts comedian-turned-playwright-turned-filmmaker Mike Birbiglia directly to the viewer at the outset of his autobiographically inspired, fictional feature debut. Birbiglia wears his incisive wit on his sleeve while portraying a cinematic surrogate. We are thrust into the tale of a burgeoning stand-up comedian struggling with the stress of a stalled career, a stale relationship threatening to race out of his control, and the wild spurts of severe sleepwalking he is desperate to ignore. Based on the successful one-man show, SLEEPWALK WITH ME engages in the kind of passionate and personal storytelling that transfigures intimate anguish into comic art. Produced and co-written by Ira Glass (WBEZ Chicago's "This American Life"), SLEEPWALK WITH ME features a stellar supporting cast that includes Lauren Ambrose ("Six Feet Under"), Carol Kane (Taxi), James Rebhorn (Meet the Parents), Cristin Milioti ("30 Rock"), and a sampling from the who's who of today's stand-up scene. Bursting with sincerity, Mike Birbiglia's foray into the medium marks the invigorating emergence of a strong and poignant American voice, at once hilarious and heartbreaking.
