Rated PG-13 · 90 minutes · 2012

Comedy drama
Actor, playwright, and stand-up comic Mike Birbiglia essentially plays himself in this dizzying navel-gazer about a desperately unfunny comedian, and it’s either a further riff on the Andy Kaufman style of awkward laffs, or one of the most embarrassing performances ever commercially produced. Birbiglia’s character, Matt, has the vocal delivery of someone who has inhaled too many industrial solvents. The more he tries to relate to his girlfriend Abby (Lauren Ambrose) and his parents (Carol Kane, James Rebhorn), the more Matt is driven into the dollar-ninety-eight stand-up life in a string of dismal bars and auditoriums. He’s rotten, and we don’t know whether to laugh, cry, or simply leave. But finally we’re released. Directed by Birbiglia and Seth Barrish. (80 min.)
