Casey has also been a staff writer on Kroll Show and Inside Amy Schumer. "I love trying to make my voice fit with someone else's I really like," he explains, "trying to write to someone else's strengths." But he's now taking a turn in front of the camera. The comedian just finished shooting Paul Feig's new Yahoo sitcom, Other Space, playing one of the leads in an ensemble cast—and word on the street is he steals the show.
Fans of sketch and improv have long known what Casey can do. Even when he's speaking nonsense in a scene onstage, there's a logic and cadence to it. He's calm and patient as a performer, milking small moments, turning what might have been a throwaway into something big—and yes, occasionally taking passionate stands about what other performers might have mistakenly deemed boring.
See Casey improvise in "Your F'ed Up Family" every Friday night at 9pm at UCB Sunset.
