The Bullpen and DC Improv proudly present a screening of The Opening Act

About this Event

The next best thing to going to a comedy club for some laughs is watching a movie about comedy clubs and comedians in a socially distanced but fun setting. Join The Bullpen and DC Improv as we screen an exclusive new movie about what it takes to make it in comedy, told by the comedians who lived it. "The Opening Act" is written and directed by comedian Steve Byrne. Doors at 6PM, movie to begin 7PM.

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.

Starring Jimmy O. Yang, Alex Moffat, Cedric The Entertainer, Neal Brennan, Bill Burr, Whitney Cummings, Jermaine Fowler, Ken Jeong, Russell Peters, Debby Ryan, Tom Segura, Iliza Shlesinger

Written and Directed by Steve Byrne. Produced by Vince Vaughn, Peter Billingsley and Sefton Fincham
