Mike and the cast of 'Don't Think Twice'
Mike Birbiglia wrote, directed and starred in 2012's acclaimed Sleepwalk with Me. He's got a new movie in the works, titled Don't Think Twice about an improv troupe that includes Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Gillian Jacobs (Community), Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates), Tami Sagher (Inside Amy Schumer) and Chris Gethard. The official synopsis:
The comedy is about an improv group that loses the lease on its home theater at the same time that one of its cast members gets chosen for the biggest sketch-comedy show on TV. It's about the bitterness and backstabbing that occurs among friends when they realize that maybe not everyone's gonna make it after all.Filming in NYC is currently underway, so stay tuned.
In other news, Mike is part of charity event "The 2nd Annual Talent Show" which happens at NYC's New World Stages / Stage 3 on December 1. Also part of this are Bleachers, Sara Bareilles, Fred Armisen, Lena Dunham, Elle King, Andrew Dost, John Early, Roy Wood Jr, Jacqueline Novak, with host Rachel Antonoff and JD Samson as your DJ for the evening. Tickets are on sale and all proceeds go support New Alternatives' work with LGBTQ Youth. Poster for the show is below.

Living Room's old LES spot (more by Amanda Hatfield) / new space in Williamsburg
The last we spoke about NYC venue Living Room, they had closed their Ludlow St location (next to Pianos and Cake Shop) but were promising to move to a new space. Their plan currently is to soft open during CMJ at their new Williamsburg location of 134 Metropolitan between Berry and Wythe. (Though there's no sign outside currently, or really any sign that it's about to be open.) That's not too far from Glasslands (or the soon-to-close Death by Audio) and if Max Fish had actually opened in Williamsburg (to have been at 132 Metropolitan), they would've been neighbors again.
So far, their schedule for CMJ includes shows with Mosco Rosco, Have Mercy, Fort Lean, Frances Cone and more. You can check out their full schedule as it stands at the moment, below...
