Ira Glass Knows Radio Production; Movies, Not So Much


Ira Glass, National Public Radio host, knows radio. He even came to Boise to discuss it a few months back.

But somehow, comedian Mike Birbiglia talked him into producing a film. Turns out Glass had no idea what he was getting himself into, something he discusses the video clip below.

The film, Sleepwalk With Me, is based off of Birbiglia's one-man show of the same name and is premiering at Sundance Film Festival in Utah. Birbiglia will be in Boise March Friday, March 23, at the Egyptian Theatre to perform a different one-man show: My Girlfriend's Boyfriend.

Until then, you'll have to make do with this clip of a very befuddled Ira Glass.
