From Producer Ron Bush:
The 70’s variety show has been remade and it’s called Flipped Out! Now we’re are looking for an awesome comedy actor and a couple writers to help us further grow the show. The show’s format is built around sketch comedy and music. Our sense of humor is ‘South Park’ meets ‘In Living Color’ meets ‘Chappelle’s Show’ – with a dash of SNL for good measure. The first three shows we’ve run have been very successful and are generating some good buzz throughout the industry. As the host and lead writer of the show, I bring seven years of experience in sketch and improv as a Second City Alum. I also work as an actor in comedy and drama – continuing to hone my craft in both commercial and theatrical realms. The show is produced and hosted at Studio C Artists on Theater Row in Hollywood. And the shows are being directed by John Coppola.
Currently, we are doing live stage shows. Additionally, we will be filming the sketches as SAG New Media projects. The cool thing is that if you’re involved, you will have the possible opportunity to get SAG credits (as well as IMDB credits) when we film certain sketches. The purpose of the stage show is to bring industry people to check out the talents of all those involved and help develop a fan base.
If you feel this is something you’d like to hear more about, and have the unique combo of true comedic and dramatic balance we’re looking for, then we’d love to see you.
Looking for a very funny actor to join our sketch crew. We’d love to meet the next Jim Belushi, Jim Carrey, Robin Williams or Steve Martin. Must have sketch and/or Improv training.
We are also interested in meeting experienced sketch comedy/comedy writers. So if you’ve been through a full course of training at any of the schools (Second City, UCB, ACME, Groundlings, IO West etc), or are an experienced comedy writer then please submit a writing sample and we’ll schedule a time for you also!
