For eleven years, an improv group called The Commune has reigned as the big fish in the small pond of their New York improv theater. Commune members Miles, Samantha, Jack, Allison, Bill and Lindsay invent comedy without a script and without a net. They're ingenious, they're fast, and they build on each others' ideas like best friends -- which they also are. Night after night they kill onstage and wait for their big break. Day after day they work menial jobs to support themselves. Then they get news that their theater is shutting down, and scouts from a hit TV show come to a performance looking for talent. Only two cast members get the nod, upsetting the dynamic of the group and leaving its future in doubt. Relationships begin to crack as six best friends face the truth that not all of them will make it, and for some, it may be time to give up on the dream and move on. Funny, insightful and honest, DON'T THINK TWICE looks at a common experience that's an uncommon subject for a film: failure. As he did in his acclaimed debut about a stand-up comedian, SLEEPWALK WITH ME, writer/director/actor Mike Birbiglia captures universal human experiences that happen in the lives of professional funny people. From the creator of THIS AMERICAN LIFE and with a top-flight ensemble of comic actors including Keegan-Michael Key, Gillian Jacobs, Kate Micucci, Chris Gethard, Tami Sagher and Birbiglia, DON'T THINK TWICE tells a nuanced story of friendship, aspiration and the pain and promise of change.

    Went to a movie for the first time in forever. Don't Think Twice is about one of my dream jobs — getting hired by SNL from an improv troupe.

    Just saw Don't think twice and then walked around Williamsburg being a bit weepy which I think is the exact reaction the movie wanted.

  • @humblecore

    Finally, finally saw Don't Think Twice. Was enjoying it as a light trifle of a movie until tears started pouring out of my face.

    Thing the Third: @birbigs beautifully sweet, funny, squirm-inducing movie ‘Don’t Think Twice’. It’s a story about comedy but so human too.
