We're just going to filmsomething for two seconds.
What is it-- this question?
Let me just prefacethis by saying,
we are in the sketchiest area.
INTERVIEWER: Wait, I needto get a little bit of it.
-I am standing in the[inaudible] coat rack.
And the other backdrop isan elevator that is not
functioning,because it's blocked
by stools and thesebig, puffy blocks.
INTERVIEWER: This where everyonewho works here does coke.
-Coke, and interviews,and they murder people.
INTERVIEWER: Well,actually, I have
a "Sleepwalk WithMe" related question.
You're working on themovie right now, right?
-We're working on a movieadaptation of it right now.
And I'm actuallywriting a book called
"Sleepwalk with Meand Other Stories."
Working on the script,it's going really well.
Uh, and the book is going great.
It should be out inthe fall-- next fall.
INTERVIEWER: Well,the book itself, uh,
correct me if I'm wrong.
It's uh-- you're going to havethe, the sleepwalking stories,
but you're also going to havedifferent stories that you're
working specificallyfor the book?
-Um, some of themwill be stories
I've done on "ThisAmerican Life."
Uh, some of themwill be completely--
most of them willbe completely new,
and-- it's-- it'sopened me up to a lot.
Like I, I've had to like,kind of sit at a Starbucks
and go-- I've got towrite all these words.
And then you're writing.
You're like, oh,and that happened.
Oh, and that happened.
What the fuck?
And then you're like-- ah.
So the thing with"Sleepwalk with Me,"
I worked with SethBarrish, who's
an excellent theater director.
And what he got me to do is kindof think about my show in terms
of being a show, having a beg--beginning, middle, and end.
And so, and so the showthat I did, like the show
I did at town hall the night,um, really has kind of a,
has a build to it.
You know, so thatit starts somewhere,
and it goes somewhere.
See, it's differentthan like, let's say,
kind of free associating, whichI-- I like to do that also.
Like, when I'm in comedyclubs, for example, like-- I,
I'll-- I, I love kind of likeimprovising for a half hour,
But we're getting kicked out.
INTERVIEWER: Yeah we are.
BOUNCER: Why you'vegot to be videotaping?
-Uh, we're doing aninterview for Comedy Central,
and there's nowherethat's quiet enough.
