In 'Sleepwalk With Me', Mike Birbiglia plays 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.

The film hits limited theaters on August 24th.
