Essentially a stand-up routine with a loose narrative about his struggles with sleepwalking (and sleep jumping and sleep crashing), Mike Birbiglia’s solo show manages to be both charming and alarming at the same time. Birbiglia, a comedian by trade, is appealing and often very funny, his endearing, every-guy persona winning many laughs as he narrates his tale of somnambulism and love.
