Mike Birbiglia’s latest film “Don’t Think Twice” follows the members of The Commune, a tight-knit improv group that plays to small audiences and little money. The group’s members — founder Mike (Mike Birbiglia), Jack (Keegan-Michael Key), Samantha (Gillian Jacobs), Allison (Kate Micucci), Lindsay (Tami Sagher), and Bill (Chris Gethard) — may hold down crappy jobs to pay the rent, but the live on stage, embody the rules of improv, and dream of being cast on “Weekend Live,” a fictional version of “Saturday Night Live.” But when one of their own actually gets cast on the popular show, the rest of the group starts to face the reality of possibly never becoming a big success. While navigating the ugly waters of happiness and despair, the group struggles to move on while holding onto the thing they love the most. Watch the brand new trailer for “Don’t Think Twice” above.
“Don’t Think Twice” is Mike Birbiglia’s second feature after “Sleepwalk With Me,” an adaptation of his one-man show about his sleepwalking disorder.
