Mike Birbiglia’s Teachable Moment

Mike Birbiglia, San Francisco, CA 6/9/16

Mike Birbiglia’s new film, DON’T THINK TWICE, won’t hit theaters until August 5, but for those in Northern California, there will be a screening at the Rafael Film Center on Monday, June 13, with Mr. Birbiglia doing a Q&A.  In honor of that, here’s a snippet about improv from my interview with the man who made us laugh at his sleep disorder, even when it involved 30 stitches, in SLEEPWALK WITH ME.

 

This funny, smart, and emotionally incisive movieDontThinkTwicePoster tells the story of an improv troupe on the cusp of change, with one member finding financial success, another dealing with a critically injured parent, and all of them realizing that it’s time to rethink the dreams that they had in their twenties. It stars Birbiglia, Gillian Jacobs (who had never done improv before), Keegan-Michael Key, Kate Micucci, Tami Sagher, and Chris Gethard as the man with the most demoralizing day jobs ever.
