    Comedian Mike Birbiglia is planning to release his new laughfest Sleepwalk With Me Live on Tuesday, April 19th via Comedy Central Records. I saw Birbigs live once in NYC. <3 him. Picture me, making the Taylor Swift heart with my hands. That's me.

    To celebrate the album's release, a special pre-sale is available at Newbury Comics. The first 500 people to pre-order the album there will receive an copy of Sleepwalk With Me autographed by Mike himself. Go here here if you want to nab a copy with Birbiglia's John Hancock.

    The album is a recording of Birbiglia's Off-Broadway play Sleepwalk With Me, a comic memoir of true life events revolving around his life-threatening sleep disorder. Birbiglia weaves a story as compelling as it is hysterical. It's a story of heartbreak and denial, of incidents and escalating accidents that culminate with a death-defying leap. On the Sleepwalk With Me Live album, Birbiglia invites listeners to take this leap with him. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and... LEAP! Or exhale, if you're chicken shit.

    In 2009, teamed up with Broadway legend Nathan Lane and award-winning director Seth Barrish in the stage show Sleepwalk With Me. The show won the Nightlife Award for Outstanding Engagement by a Comedian and received Drama Desk, Lucille Lortel, and Outer Critics' Circle nominations as Best Solo Show. The play transcended joke-to-joke comedy and wove humor into a single, compelling, story.

    In addition to his critically acclaimed 2009 Off-Broadway show, Sleepwalk With Me, Mike Birbiglia's My Girlfriend's Boyfriend, a new comedy written by and starring Birbiglia, is currently playing to sold out audiences at The Barrow Street Theater in New York City. In his new play, Birbiglia shares a lifetime of romantic blunders and miscues that most adults would spend a lifetime trying to forget. Oh, how I love comedians.

    Have you seen any of Birbiglia's shows? Will you Sleepwalk with him?
