Have a look at The Opening Act, an RLJE Films-released comedy produced by Vince Vaughn and starring Jimmy O. Yang (Silicon Valley), Jermaine Fowler, Cedric the Entertainer and Ken Jeong.
Pic is written and directed by stand-up comedian Steve Byrne, and captures the audacity of bounding onto the stand up comedy stage, bombing horribly and summoning the courage to try again. Because the alternative is a boring 9-to-5 job.
Alex Moffat, Neal Brennan, Debby Ryan, Bill Burr and Russell Peters (Supercon) also star. Vaughn produced with Peter Billingsley under their Wild West Picture Show banner, along with Sefton Fincham.
Pic’s released October 16.
