This week I chat to Craig Ricci Shaynak. Interview was recorded back in August 2018 at the Edinburgh Performing Arts Festival. A brilliant guy so sit back and enjoy.

Craig Ricci Shaynak is an actor, writer, and producer living in Hollywood, California who has appeared in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe at least a dozen times since 1989 in original shows such as MR FIZZYWIGG'S STORY FACTORY, COWBOYS & INDIANS, and I AM GOOGLE. Most people would recognize him from his numerous roles in television and film, including RAY DONOVAN opposite Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight, TED 2 with Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane, THE INFORMANT with Matt Damon, directed by Steven Soderbergh, and HARSH TIMES with Christian Bale and J.K. Simmons, directed by David Ayer. Mr. Shaynak has also done voices for such films as HAPPY FEET and NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM. Craig produced the award-winning short films WARHOL, written and directed by Adam Ethan Crow, THE BEATING by Paul Stroili and Cyrus Myrakhor, and THE STORY MAN by Erik Hudson. Craig spends most of his time writing scripts and attributes any success he may have to his very useful degree in Medieval Drama from the University of Chicago.
