Job Title:
Casting Comedian for Feature Lead
Job Location:
LA, CA
Job Description:
I'm an award-winning, repped writer/director/producer and I'm searching for a stand-up comic to cast as my lead in my new movie, which is a high-concept comedy. I don't have to tell you how tough times are for the business. When it's all said and done, my producer and I will have raised a couple hundred grand, we'll shoot and hit the festival circuit. This is not a project I can really get your agent excited about because it only pays a daily rate, so it'll have to be a passion project for you.

You will receive SAG daily rate, travel and accommodation expenses when the location is not local. But most importantly, you will be the star of a feature film.

The script was submitted all over town and I took a lot of great meetings, but ultimately it was not purchased. However, the list of execs who thought it was hilarious is strong enough to give me the confidence to make it myself. But, in the end, you will be the judge as to how good it is when you decide if it's worthy of a starring vehicle for yourself.

Please only submit if you're a headlining comic.
