In episode 049 of Actorcast, we are joined by actor and comedian, Otter Lee. I love how much joy and humor Otter brings to this interview and I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation! We discuss Otter's career trajectory from studying multiple disciplines in school, to improv, then stand-up. We chat about the first Asian Comedy Festival that Otter helped produce, and Otter gives his insights into what actors can be doing to elevate their careers.
