SXSW 2016: Director and stars of “Don’t Think Twice” wreak havoc in TheWrap’s Austin studio
The three comedic forces came in support of “Don’t Think Twice,” Birbiglia’s followup to his 2012 festival hit “Sleepwalk With Me.”
The film follows a troupe of sketch comedians who lose the lease on their theater space at the same moment when one of their members lands a plum job on a sketch show reminiscent of “Saturday Night Live.”
Hard realities come as the group members confront the fact that their shared dream will not be realized by everyone — and that success comes with its own set of challenges.
In this video, the actors and director get candid about their own brushes with success — Key is on the verge of mainstream explosion with his partner Jordan Peele, Jacobs’ can’t-miss performance in the Judd Apatow-Netflix series “Love” is already seeing Emmy buzz — jealousy, rejection and happiness as a performer.
