Local Sundancers get a look at the life of a stand-up comic and a couple of intriguing documentaries tonight. ---

The highlight of the early evening slot looks to be Sleepwalk With Me, comedian Mike Birbiglia's screen adaptation of his one-man show about his sleep-disorder issues. For more information, check out the CW interview with Birbiglia.

For the late evening, there's veteran documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger's Under African Skies, a look at the story behind Paul Simon's groundbreaking -- and sometimes controversial -- 1986 album Graceland. Also receiving praise from local media is The Imposter, telling the true-life story of a disappeared teenager and the person who returns claiming to be the missing boy.
