Joel Kim Booster- Andrew Ahn- Hot Seat Interview- Actor/Director- Fire Island

The talents of comedian, writer, and star Joel Kim Booster merging with director Andrew Ahn to make Fire Island is a thing of beauty. The two are a perfect match of humor, heart, and sensitivity. They have put it all on display in Fire Island, easily one of the best romantic comedies of 2022. Booster uses his inspiration from Jane Austen and Ahn uses his excellent craftsmanship that deserves a larger audience. Ahn’s previous two films Spa Night and Driveways were massive hits and the streak continues here. This time with a bigger cast and a lot more laughs. Fire Island is not just a watershed moment for LGBTQ cinema, but more. It stands on its own as a breakout film for Booster and Ahn. You finish watching Fire Island and instantly want to see what they make next. I was incredibly lucky to be able to chat with the Joel and Andrew, talking about their inspirations, getting the comedy right, and working with Bowen Yang. Watch it here:
