Mike Birbiglia to Guest on Unmasked with Cast Members From ‘Don’t Think Twice’

dont think twice

Mike Birbiglia and the cast of his new movie, Don’t Think Twice, will be joining Ron Bennington to tape an episode of Unmasked at SiriusXM. The cast of the new movie will join Bennington in SiriusXM’s famed ‘Fishbowl’ studio to talk about the new movie which is in theaters July 22nd. Unmasked is a series of uncensored conversations with the world’s greatest comedic voices.

Birbiglia’s new movie takes you inside baseball (or improv comedy in this case), with a story about an improv troupe who loses the lease on their home theater about the same time as one of their cast members gets grabbed to be a cast member on an SNL-esque television show. What happens to the improv group next is all the bitterness, backstabbing and other revelations that come along with the realization that not everyone in a group is going to make it. The tale has been told in the rock world before, but never as a part of comedy. The film looks behind the scenes at what happens when the “band” splits up after one member goes for the big time with a solo career move. The film is getting gigantic buzz after premiering at SXSW this year, and Birbiglia has been touring the country hand delivering screenings across America along with a bus of improv comics. The film stars Mike Birbiglia, along with Keegan-Michael Key, Chris Gethard, Gillian Jacobs, Tami Sagher and Kate Micucci.

Ron and Birbiglia, Gethard, Jacobs and Micucci will tape the hour long interview in front of a live studio audience on Tuesday July 19th at 11:45am and you can request free tickets to attend. There are a very limited number of tickets available so get your requests in fast!

The Unmasked series documents the careers of the very best comedy writers, directors, filmmakers, actors, screenwriters, satirists, political comedians, comedic musicians and of course, stand up comedians in the business. With over 125 episodes so far, Unmasked is a veritable archive of the greatest comedy of our time.  Past Unmasked guests have included , , , , , , , , , , , , , Patrice O’Neal and over 100 more comedy greats.
