A couple of days ago we got some info of a new reality comedy competition show that is currently seeking talented individuals for their new show. The show is from Adam Sandler’s company Happy Madison and Tenth Planet, and they are looking for comedians immediately.
Check out the info on the requirements below:
CONTESTANT: New weekly comedy competition series being produced for a network by Happy Madison and Tenth Planet is looking for the most talented comics in the country to showcase your comedy skills. We’re seeking the undiscovered Will Ferrells, Kristin Wiigs, Jimmy Fallons, Ken Jeongs and Tracey Morgans. You must be a multi-faceted comic, able to do some or all of the following: original characters, impersonations, musical comedy, stand-up, short films, and comedic acting. And if you produce your own material, that’s a plus. We are open to any performer 18 and over – from those who have limited appearances on network comedy shows, to those performing in comedy clubs, underground theaters, improv troupes, independent films, Funny or Die, You Tube and even college sketch groups.
16 talented upstarts will be cast and face weekly challenges in all different areas of comedy. The contenders will be mentored by our three judges (some of the biggest names in comedy) and will receive advice from special guest comedy superstars. One comic contender will rise above the rest and, at the end of the series, win a big cash prize.
The show will film in Los Angeles in the Spring of 2014 and all participants will be required to be in LA during the actual production period (approximately 10 weeks). All hotel, airfares, and expenses will be covered by the show.
