Honesty has been the best policy for actor, writer, and comic Mike Birbiglia. He earned a slew of accolades for his one-man show Sleepwalk With Me, in which he chronicled his struggles with Rapid Eye Movement Disorder, an affliction that frequently found him in a state of dream walking, talking, and even jumping—he once leapt out of a second story motel window and woke up outside in a pile of shattered glass. Birbiglia’s observant humor can often be heard on the nationally syndicated radio show “This American Life.”

Saturday 4/5.  $35, 8pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
