Comedian & actor Steve Byrne recently spoke to the press about the new season of Sullivan & Son on TBS and his upcoming comedy special. He talked about the new season, about why he thinks the show was a success, and how much of himself comes out in his character. Check out what he had to say in preparation for tonightâ€™s Season 2 premiere.
On the transition from Season 1 to Season 2
Steve Byrne: You know, the first season, we were tying to figure things out, figure out what works with actors and characters. And it’s kind of a, you know, a testing ground. But I think towards the end of the season, we started flushing things out and figuring things out and figuring out our strengths as opposed to our weaknesses.
And we really hit the ground running from the first episode back. And we just filmed a great one last night with Billy Gardell from Mike & Molly, and then it might be my favorite one. Prior to that, I thought the Ken Jeong one was my favorite one. So they just keep getting better and better.
It’s a lot funnier. I mean a lot edgier. We do push the envelope with the show. I should say Hank’s character pushes the envelope with the show. Carol and Owen’s relationship gets pushed to the line quite a bit.
And I’m just really excited about it. I’m really, really, really excited about it. I, you know, I’m really proud of this one. It’s going to be fun.
