Mike Birbiglia is a very funny comedian and has recently started talking about how he is afflicted by sleepwalking. Which is not so funny if you’ve experienced it.
This American Life featured his story in August and I was transfixed by it – as were others. Mike is now producing an off Broadway show called “Sleepwalk with me” and he has an open call to everyone with sleep problems to donate a youtube video detailing their story.
None of the entries beat the severity of Mike’s condition (which is downright scary) but it is interesting to see how many people who knew about this project – donate their stories and make it seem lighthearted and something that everyone has to deal with at one time or another.
