Casey Affleck Joined Ben & Lindsay Shookus For Their Night Out

Casey Affleck joined older brother Ben Affleck on his night out with girlfriend Lindsay Shookus at the comedy showcase at iO West comedy club earlier this week!

The 37-year-old SNL producer was there to scout talent, so Ben brought along his younger brother to also come watch.

“She was more in a work role, being a talent scout for SNL, rather than having a romantic date night,” a witness told Us Weekly. “Casey and Lindsay said hello to each other and then Casey and Ben chatted for a while.”

Ben and Lindsay were very kind to all the staff there, talking with the host, manager and those sitting around them,” the witness continued. “The comedians were definitely excited when they heard Ben was there, but Lindsay was the one they were trying to impress. Ben, Lindsay and Casey were laughing throughout a lot of the performances.”
