Editorial Reviews

This is it! Mike Birbiglia s magnum opus Sleepwalk With Me is now on CD. In his theatrical debut, comedian Mike Birbiglia takes the audience on a hysterically funny and intensely personal journey through his struggles with sleepwalking and his reluctance to confront his fears of love, honesty and growing up. Sleepwalk With Me is the rare collision of comedy and theatre that touches your funny bone and tickles your heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank goodness he didn't become a rapper... June 3, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I want to say before we get started- I'm a BIG FAN of Mike Birbiglia. That said, I also put my comedy under the microscope when I listen to it. I refuse to let people get by solely on popularity and cheap laughs. It sounds weird, but I take it very seriously. I listen for things like timing, style, set-up, subtlety, and overall delivery. I. Love. My. Standup.

This album is Birbiglia's masterpiece. Someone else who gave it a low review complained he's doing the same old jokes. Well, for those of us who ONLY get to catch Birbiglia on disc (or the occasional tv spot), none of this is "old rehashed material." I have his two albums before this- aside from an "inside joke" here or there, like "I'm in the future also" or "...I know..." NONE of this is from previous releases. Now to the album.

I have listened to this about six times in the last week. Start to finish. Birbiglia has grown in terms of his presentation. He worked on this and performed it off-broadway for 8 months and then recorded it with an audience. It is amazing. His ability to present a story, in the form of comedy, while being so personal and themed around troubles sleeping just blows my mind. He also chose to use more theatric voices and changes in tone in his voice. (Ive heard many complaints his voice is too monotone on previous releases; which is fair), BUT on this album he does SO MUCH to wrap you in it's amazing.

For those who enjoy comedy themed around personal experience and growing as a person, as opposed to "observations on society" humor, I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS! If you're already a comedy buff, this album is right there with Christopher Titus' stand-up...without the vulgarity and insanity.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gifted Humorist at His Best April 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I drove from Indianapolis to Cincinnati to see one of the performances recorded for this release. I'd seen the show before, but wanted to be there when it was documented for the ages. It was well worth the trip! Mike Birbiglia is a gifted humorist and "Sleepwalk With Me" is a wonderful creation. Hilarious, intimate and moving, it's a beaut. Mike was at his best the night I was there and you'll get to hear it here. Highest recommendation!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Storytelling (Also, Hilarious) July 30, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
After running his one-man off-broadway show, Mike Birbiglia wrote a memoir: SLEEPWALK WITH ME: AND OTHER PAINFULLY TRUE STORIES. To tour for this book, Birbiglia took many distilled elements of the book and condensed it into a roughly hour long CD. SLEEPWALK WITH ME LIVE is that CD. Make no mistake, it's a comedy record, but it's also Birbiglia's most personal. Most of it is funny, but there are a few points that are poignant, a few that are scary, and a few that are sad.

SLEEPWALK WITH ME LIVE is essentially the story of Mike Birbiglia's odd sleep behavior and how it escalated through his life. As it escalates, it affects and mirrors his relationships with other people. Some of the material here is painfully personal, but for me, the shining moments on this album are when the comedian is willing to let the jokes take a break. The moment his girlfriend gives him an ultimatum, and the moment he spends with his dad at the end of the story; these vignettes feel like they could have been lifted from THIS AMERICAN LIFE.

For listeners new to Mike Birbiglia, I think I would recommend MY SECRET PUBLIC JOURNAL LIVE as a potential gateway before this release. SLEEPWALK WITH ME isn't particularly esoteric, but his previous release has funnier moments than some of the ones here (which are traded here for more poignant moments). Essential bits to download/hear: "There's Something In My Bladder," "I'm A Bear, Etc.," and "The Missile."

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best comedy routines EVER! March 16, 2012
By T. Todd
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This whole album weaves together brilliantly. It's way above a comedien just going down a list of jokes. I've listened to it about 10 times already, and I'm still amazed at how every joke ties to some other joke later, in hilarious fashion. It reminds me of Tolkein, how every detail is there for a reason, and ties in with other details, chapters or books downriver. It's on a par with Cosby's BUCK BUCK and Abbott and Costello's WHO'S ON FIRST. It's a comedy masterpiece.

Overall, great album. Very well written. Love how it all ties together in the end -- very rare for an album to do this in such a clever, thoughtful way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing story January 17, 2012
By Jayson
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've tried to listen to every one of Mike Birbiglia's CDs and watch his comedy specials. I've got to say this is possibly the Funniest and Saddiest comedy I've ever heard. I feel as though you feel real sympathy for some of the things he has gone through and I appreciate him sharing these with the world. Although I hope nothing but happiness for him I do hope he never stops doing comedy. He is and will probably be one of my favorite comedians the rest of my life.
