Slated as “A comedy for anyone who has ever had a dream. And then jumped out a window” Sleep Walk With Me is the story of a stand-up comedian who’s anxiety about his long term girlfriend begins to manifest itself in increasingly dangerous sleepwalking episodes, and the increasing hilarity of his act.

Co-written by Ira Glass and produced by This American Life, there is no effing way this could be bad.
