Hello, I am Mike Birbiglia and I want you to read my book. Too on the nose? Sorry. Let me dial it back.

I'm Mike Birbiglia and I'm a comedian. You may know me from Comedy Central or This American Life or The Bob & Tom Show , but you've never seen me like this before.


Wait, that's the name of another book. Also I'm not naked as there are no pictures in my book. Also, if there were naked pictures of me, you definitely wouldn't buy it, though you might sneak a copy into the back corner of the bookstore and show it to your friend and laugh. Okay, let's get off the naked stuff.

This is my first book. It's difficult to describe. It's a comedic memoir, but I'm only 32 years old so I'd hate for you to think I'm "wrapping it up," so to speak. But I tell some personal stories. Some REALLY personal stories. Stories that I considered not publishing time and time again, especially when my father said, "Michael, you might want to stay away from the per#65533;sonal stuff." I said, "Dad, just read the dedication." (Which I'm telling you to do too.)

Some of the stories are about my childhood, some are about girls I made out with when I was thirteen, some are about my parents, and some are, of course, about my bouts with sleepwalking. Bring this book to bed. And sleepwalk with me.

Sleepwalk with Me by comedian Mike Birbiglia is a fast and funny read which also delves into the serious topic of his sleepwalking. I recommend reading the book first and then watching the movie with the same title. If you are a David Sedaris fan, you will probably enjoy this book.

Comedian Mike Birbiglia writes about his life and his ambition to become a stand-up comedian. I found it mildly amusing in parts and quite tedious in others.

So funny I had to stop reading to catch my breath.
