SIFF Says:Directed and written by comedian Mike Birbiglia, Don't Think Twice is a heartfelt comedy about a New York City improv group in which each member faces the insecurity and the complex reality of pursuing a dream in the comedy world. Birbiglia stars with a uniformly excellent cast—including Keegan-Michael Key, Kate Micucci, Tami Sagher, Gillian Jacobs, and Chris Gethard—collaborating as a Brooklyn-based troupe called The Commune. After losing their theater lease, they all have to reconsider their own paths as individual comedians and their relationships to one another, struggling to accept the differences in each member’s opportunities and slowly learning to deal with new tensions. Realistic, funny, but far from satirical, Birbiglia’s comedy succeeds in telling the story of six friends challenged by jealousy, talent, and sacrifice without ever forgetting about their sense of family, support, and encouragement. Don't Think Twice will make you laugh, and maybe cry, and make all of us remember why we fight for our passions—even when they drive us crazy.
