Comedian — and somnambulist — Mike Birbiglia has a one-man show "Sleepwalk With Me." He mines his sleepwalking experiences for 85 minutes of comedy.

Sometimes his dreams of danger, like a missile headed straight for him, propel him out of his bed and into the path of real danger. Birbiglia finds the funny in these experiences and takes it to the stage.
