Mike Birbiglia and Ira Glass‘ Sleepwalk with Me is one of the year’s must-see films. It takes a fascinating look into the world of stand-up comedy, but it also provides a great conflict between loving your work and loving a person, and how moving towards one can cause painful revelations about the other. It’s heavy stuff that never weighs down the picture because Birbiglia, a stand-up comic, has created a hilarious, honest story.
The movie had a limited run in theaters, but now it’s available on VOD, and I highly encourage you to check it out. As a bonus, Birbiglia and Glass will be hosting a video chat on Friday for your pizza party if you want to gather your friends and watch the movie. Hit the jump to check out a message from Birbiglia and Glass, and for details on how you can get them to video chat with your pizza party.
