Mike Birbiglia made his directorial debut last year with his semi-autobiographical film, Sleepwalk With Me. While the film had some rough edges to it, it was surprisingly pleasant. Birbiglia channeled his stand up routine’s natural awkwardness to the big screen in a great way. After watching it, I knew things could only get better for this sleeping hazard of a man.
Now we have to wonder what’s next for Birbiglia? Sources say that Birbiglia is working on adapting another stand up routine into a movie. This bit is called “My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend”. The general outline of the story is when Mike had his first girlfriend in high school, but it turned out she had another boyfriend. I’ll spare you the details and let you listen yourself with the video below.
As you can tell, from such an awkward encounter, it would make a solid film. All hopes are now being put upon whether he can improve from his slightly flawed first film.
