DON'T THINK TWICE

When a member of a popular New York City improv troupe gets cast on a hit TV show, the rest of the group—all best friends—start to realize that not everyone is going to make it after all. From Mike Birbiglia, the director of SLEEPWALK WITH ME, and Ira Glass, the creator of "This American Life," comes this critically acclaimed comedy packed with comic stars (Keegan-Michael Key, Gillian Jacobs, Mike Birbiglia, Kate Micucci, Chris Gethard and Tami Sagher). A nuanced story of friendship, aspiration and the pain and promise of change, Mike Birbiglia’s new film presents a hilarious, honest and insightful look at the lives of professional funny people.

“If comedy is tragedy plus time, improv is the purest expression of its instability… A delicately wrought ensemble piece with first-rate turns by Gillian Jacobs, Keegan-Michael Key, and Birbiglia himself, DON’T THINK TWICE scrutinizes its playful setting and finds an ideal entry point for exploring creative desperation.” —Eric Kohn, IndieWire

“Birbiglia has built his comedy brand on telling stories about himself, but in embracing improv’s valuing the group over any individual, he’s spun his most compelling yarn yet.” —Joanna Robinson, Vanity Fair
