Ira Glass and Mike Birbiglia Talk Shop About New Movie

In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, “This American Life” creator Ira Glass and comedian Mike Birbiglia talked comedy, improv, the creative process and what it means to give up on your dreams in a discussion about their new movie, “Don’t Think Twice.”

The movie, which was written by Birbiglia and produced by Glass, follows the path of an improv troupe and the changing face of success and failure in their lives. It features Birbiglia, Keegan Michael-Key, Chris Gethard, Community’s Gillian Jacobs, Hall & Oats’ Kate Miccuci, and Inside Amy Schumer writer Tami Sagher.
