Trivia

Kevin Spacey asked the director for call sheets when Garry Shandling was going to be doing his scenes so that he could be there to watch. Spacey gave Shandling acting advice between takes, and at one point was even Garry's focal point behind the camera to mimic a facial expression, which the director used in the film since it captured the moment perfectly.

Though the play was first performed around 1985, some characters names are coincidental to ones used as main characters in "The Larry Sanders Show" (1992)_, which stars Garry Shandling in the lead role. Here, Shandling plays a character named Artie, which is a nickname for Arthur - played by Rip Torn's character in the series; and the film also contains characters named Phil and Darlene, also regular figures in the series.
