Don’t Think Twice is currently available on digital HD and will be open for purchase on Blu-Ray/DVD December 6, 2016. Directed by and starring comedian Mike Birbiglia, the film opens up with 3 rules on how to succeed in the business of improvisational comedy.

A group of 6 friends puts those rules to the test inside and outside of the comedy club they all perform at, especially when one of the friends is discovered and makes it onto the hottest live comedy skit show in New York City.

Rule #1: YES

Say ‘Yes’ to whatever life throws your way, you never know where it will lead you. In the world of entertainment, it seems like talent is not required just popularity. But how many of those who have made it to the top, help those still struggling? In Don’t Think Twice Jack (Keegan-Michael Key) uses his new found fame to stay on top, but at the expense of his friends who are still struggling.

Rule #2: It’s All About The Group

You can’t do everything on your own, you need a team, no matter what it is. But at the end of the day and the reality of many situations, people lose passion for certain gains and life is always changing. But remember to wish them well and always end on good terms, but as these group of friends reevaluate their purpose for success, it’s all about themselves instead of others.

Rules #3: Don’t Think

“Has anybody had a particularly hard day?” Sometimes when you don’t think, you make the biggest mistakes of your life that often teach you the greatest lesson you won’t have even known.

Don’t Think Twice is a must see because it shows the love and passion we all have for our own definition of success. The heart of this film is the fondness they have for one another, as they explore the philosophy that inspired the world, themselves, and the comedy of improv!
