Audible Editor Reviews

Mike Birbiglia has emerged as one of the premier storytellers in comedy. A frequent contributor to This American Life, Birbiglia shows his prodigious talents in Sleepwalk with Me: Live, which was previously an acclaimed off-Broadway play, best-selling memoir, and award-winning film. His style is witty but not overbearing, conversational yet constructed, and his overall genial demeanor means that he can broach dark topics - such as having a tumor and developing a sleeping disorder that caused him to jump out of a hotel window, nearly ending his life - and manage to sound light-hearted.

    Story
    "Hard to Sleepwalk While Laughing!"
    Would you listen to Sleepwalk with Me again? Why?

    Of course, he has reached a level of awkwardness that makes him so funny and relatable!


    What did you like best about this story?

    How he turns personal tragedy into some of the funniest material out there. I hope that one day I can weave my stories in the same fashion.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Think of your worst night terror and then make someone laugh at your pain, genius.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I enjoyed the stories involving his brother, I was moved to laughter. This was a common occurrence, I'm very happy to say.


    Any additional comments?

    Check out his My Secret Public Journal, you'll thank me later.

    "Just OK"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed it even though it was a little disappointing. His other cds were better.


    If you’ve listened to books by Mike Birbiglia before, how does this one compare?

    This one was a little more personal and somewhat sentimental than his others. His others were funnier.


    What three words best describe the narrator’s performance?

    good not great


    Could you see Sleepwalk with Me being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    It could possibly be a tv show based on his life.


    Any additional comments?

    I was a little let down with this one, but it was still an enjoyable listen.

    Story
    "The perfect standup performance."

    Birbiglia is a natural story-teller, and this is his masterpiece. Birbiglia gives so much of himself in this personal story that takes in insomnia, heartache, illness and all the highs and lows of life whilst still being brilliantly funny. Very few comedians achieve such heartfelt comedy; in recent years only Russel Kane has produced an album as touching and personal as this one.
