SPACE CASE-EP. 125 (SK INTERVIEWS – Steve Byrne: Writer and Director of THE OPENING ACT)

This week on SPACE CASE, we take a quick break from the spooky content to bring you an interview with a SCARY good writer, director, and comedian Steve Byrne! He’s the creator and director of the new film THE OPENING ACT. In this film, Will Chu is stuck in a thankless job while trying to pursue his true passion in life, becoming a stand-up comedian. When he gets the opportunity he’s been waiting for, the emcee slot on the road opening for his hero Billy G., the realities of life on the stage come crashing in. Between relentless hecklers, drunk comedy groupies and hard-to-impress morning radio DJs, things get off to a rough start. Even if he can learn from his idols and overcome the challenges, he’ll have to prove he has what it takes to make his dream a reality. The cast and cameos in this film include Jimmy O. Yang, Alex Moffat, Cedric The Entertainer, Neal Brennan, Debby Ryan, Ken Jeong, Bill Burr, Whitney Cummings, Jermaine Fowler, Russell Peters, Tom Segura, Iliza Shlesinger AND it’s co-produced by Vince Vaughn. We chat with Steve about being a working comedian, creating your own content, the process of making the film, some weird gigs he’s had, and MORE!
