Bartender and aspiring stand-up Matt (Mike Birbiglia) is at an impasse in his career and relationship. Feeling pressure from his family and girlfriend Abby (Lauren Ambrose, Six Feet Under) to get married after dating for eight years, Matt takes his modest act on the road to clear his head and jumpstart his career. He steadily improves his set, but the new material only increases his doubts about his future with Abby. Adding to his distress is a potentially dangerous sleep disorder that leads him to act out his dreams - fleeing jackals, winning an Olympic medal for Dustbustering, avoiding a missile strike, the usual things. Birbiglia and Ira Glass (This American Life) co-wrote this charming, insightful, and very funny adaptation of Birbiglia‘s book and one-man show.
