Sleepwalk With Me follows the comic’s memoir as he deals with the life-threatening disorder of sleepwalking. According to PRNewsWire.com, “It’s a story of heartbreak and denial, of incidents and escalating accidents that culminate with a death-defying leap. On the “Sleepwalk With Me Live!” album, Birbiglia invites listeners to take this leap with him.”
The show has won much acclaim since it’s debut including: The Nightlife Award for Outstanding Engagement by a Comedian and Drama Desk, Lucille Lortel, and Outer Critics’ Circle nominations as Best Solo Show. The New York Times has called Birbiglia’s Off-Broadway hit “simply perfect” and “about more than it’s about.”
