Mike Birbiglia is a comedy star across the Atlantic, with a number of sellout standup tours and popular comedy albums behind him. He’s also appeared as a supporting player in films like ‘Going the Distance’ and ‘Your Sister’s Sister’, but it’s not been enough to establish his reputation worldwide. That could be set to change in the wake of his debut as a writer-director, ‘Sleepwalk With Me’. Adapted from his autobiographical one-man show, the film stars Birbiglia as a loosely fictionalised version of himself, here renamed Matt, a young comedian suffering from a bizarre sleep disorder. The film has been a critical success in the US, picking up a number of festival awards.
