Our dead pilot this month was written by Brian Gallivan (The McCarthy’s, Happy Endings). It’s called Mr. Joyce’s Opus and it centers around Chuck Joyce, a catholic school teacher, who decides to throw out his curriculum to connect with his students despite the fact that his students are horrible little monsters. Andrew interviews Brian regarding his dead pilot and you’ll also listen to a live table read of Mr. Joyce’s Opus, performed by some of today's funniest comedic actors.

We had a great cast for this one including Mike Kosinski as Chuck Joyce, Kirby Howell Baptiste as Julia McGill, Lauren Lapkus as Gifted Sara, Ginger Gonzaga as Leslie, Aparna Nancherla as Krystal, Mamie Gummer as Adriana, Janina Gavankar as Felicia, Elizabeth Ho as Vanessa, Sam Richardson as Mr. Meadows, Gary Anthony Williams as Principal Flood, and Andrew Reich with stage directions.

Come to our next live show at The USC Comedy Festival on November 4th at 4pm. Because we love our fans sooooo much, this show is completely free! We’re reading a pilot called American Alien written by Sierra Teller Ornelas (Superstore, Splitting Up Together).
