“The Opening Act” is out today! Steve Byrne wrote and directed “The Opening Act.” Steve was kind enough to spend some time with Cash & Carly to talk about his new film, the comedy scene, and life in 2020.
Here’s a brief synopsis of the film.
“THE OPENING ACT” SYNOPSIS: Will Chu (Jimmy O. Yang) appears to have it all – the job, the girl – but what’s missing is his true passion in life. He wants to become 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 take the opportunity to learn from his idols and overcome the challenges, Will still needs to decide if he should continue with the life he has, or pursue the one he has always dreamt of – the life of a comedian.
