Sleepwalk With Me Is A Must See

Last Sunday I went to the IFC Center to see Mike Birbiglia’s movie based on his one-man show. I was psyched to see it because I heard some parts of his show on “This American Life” and I wanted to see how it was adapted for the big screen.

For those who have seen the theatrical version or read the book there aren’t any spoilers; however, despite having heard a version of this story I was still able to enjoy it like it was my first time. Mike does a great job portraying a younger version of himself and there were some great cameos by Marc Maron, Wyatt Cenac, Jessi Klein and others.

It’s a wonderful story of life, career ambition, a couple’s life taking divergent paths and of admitting you have a problem and how to deal with it. Right now this little film is playing in selected theaters. I highly recommend that you check out the movie’s site to see where it is playing near you and if it isn’t you should make some noise and demand that they make room on the marquee for “Sleepwalk With Me.”

Also check out the video clips below if you’re still not convinced to see this movie.

Are you still here, what are you waiting for? Go see the movie already! 🙂

Give It Up For Greg Giraldo

Recently, Comedy Central aired a tribute for Greg Giraldo called “Give It Up For Greg Giraldo“. Not having cable anymore I wasn’t able to see it. Fortunately, thanks to the blog, The Comic’s Comic, I found out that Comedy Central has clips of this show on their site so I got to at least view a sample of this special.

One of my few regrets in life is not being able to see his stand up live. The closest I got  was seeing him during a live taping of WTF with Marc Maron. He was still funny as hell without any stand-up bits. At least I have his two albums that I can listen to whenever I want to hear his comedy genius.

He was a comedy great and he shall be missed.

A Night Of Comedy And Pleasant Surprises

Last night I got to meet up with Keith McNally, of XO and I Have A Ham Radio fame and hangout for a bit. We got to reminisce and share our different experiences of living in New York City and compare and contrast them. We also got to see a free comedy show at the Kniting Club in Brooklyn in the neighborhood of Williamsburg. I had heard earlier that day that Marc Maron was going to be doing a guest spot before heading back to CA and thought it would be a great way for Keith to start out his week back in the Big Apple.

Not only did we get to see him that night but thanks to series of events we actually got to share a booth with Marc Maron and talk to him for a bit before the show began. I took a picture to commemorate the night and I got some stickers from Maron for his podcast, WTF With Marc Maron. It was a great night to say the least.

One more note before I go. One of things Keith got to talk to Maron was about his inability to embrace New York City. Marc told him how it isn’t hard once you come up with a system to make the city achieve whatever it is you want to do and how great the city could be once you figure it all out. Then after he finished talking up NYC, in his next breath he talked about how he wasn’t going to be living here anymore and essentially how he couldn’t wait to go back to CA. So far for trying to convince Keith about how great the Big Apple is.
