Have you ever wanted to be a comedian? - The Opening Act (2020) - Review

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.

In this dive into the live of an emerging comic, we see the highs and the lows of the business. This is a great movie. It stars lots of comics that you know and love, and tells a great story. I am sure it hits close to home for many of the stars. Well worth a watch if you like to laugh and like to cheer for the little guy..

Ranking 7.5/10
