KOSU Goes to the Movies

Filed by Rachel Hubbard in Feature.
September 25, 2012

Based on This American Life contributor Mike Birbiglia’s successful one man show, Sleepwalk With Me is co-written and produced by This American Life creator Ira Glass.  The show runs September 21st-23rd and 25th through 27th at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.

To celebrate the final night of the show, join member of the KOSU and Spy staff for cocktails at the museum’s Rooftop Terrace from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.  (A separate five dollar admission is required.).  The movie begins in the museum’s theater at 7:30 p.m.

Based on comedian-turned-playwright-turned-filmmaker Mike Birbiglia’s successful one-man show, Sleepwalk with Me engages in the kind of passionate and personal storytelling that transfigures intimate anguish into comic art. 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. Produced and co-written by Ira Glass (NPR’s “This American Life”), the film features a stellar supporting cast: Lauren Ambrose, Carol Kane, James Rebhorn, Cristin Milioti, and a 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.
