A native New Yorker, Eichner attended New York’s prestigious Stuyvesant High School and went on to graduate from Northwestern University.
Billy Epstein is a stand-up comedian, actor, and absolutely terrible waiter. Family and romantic relationships are secondary in his life. His #1 priority is to become a success in show business. This is probably why he shares such a strong bond with Julie, who’s his biggest fan and greatest collaborator. Billy is sarcastic, loyal to a fault, is usually right about everything, and if you don’t agree, you’re wrong.
