“A Funny, Moving, Compassionate Comedy. Mike Birbiglia has made his Annie Hall.”– Leonard Maltin, Maltin on Movies
When a member of a popular New York City improv troupe gets cast on a hit TV show, the rest of the group – all best friends – start to realize that not everyone is going to make it after all. From the director of Sleepwalk With Me and the creator of This American Life comes Don’t Think Twice, a critically acclaimed comedy packed with comic stars Keegan-Michael Key, Gillian Jacobs, Mike Birbiglia, Kate Micucci, Chris Gethard and Tami Sagher that presents a hilarious and honest look at the lives of professional funny people. 90 min.
Mike Birbiglia is a comedian, writer, and actor who burst onto the film scene in 2012 with his directorial debut, Sleepwalk With Me, an official selection of the South by Southwest Film Festival and winner of the Sundance Film Festival’s “Best of Next” Audience Award. As an actor Birbiglia has appeared in The Fault in Our Stars, Trainwreck, Orange is the New Black, Digging for Fire, and Your Sister’s Sister. Birbiglia returns to writing and directing with his highly-anticipated second feature, Don’t Think Twice, co-starring Keegan Michael-Key and Gillian Jacobs. The film premiered at the 2016 South by Southwest Film Festival. Birbiglia has created and starred in three off-Broadway one-person shows: Sleepwalk With Me, My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, and his latest, Thank God For Jokes, which Neil Genzlinger of The New York Times calls “the best night I’ve spent in a theater in a very long time.”
