Devine starred opposite Zac Efron in the recent hit Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dresses and can be seen in Magic Camp where he will be playing Andy, a counsellor who returns to the camp of his youth hoping to reignite his career.

Additionally, Devine will be seen alongside Alexandra Daddario in Netflix’s When We First Met, which will be released in 2017. Devine has headlined sold-out comedy shows all over the nation. Devine acts, writes and produces all of Mail Order Comedy’s material, including Workaholics.
