I am in the final stages of arranging COMEDYFESSIONALS CASTING DIRECTORS events where our members - comics and actors get up close and personal with some of the best casting directors in the biz...
In response to the queries from new comics and actors please follow this advice:
(1) Send out postcards about what you are currently working on to Casting Directors (2) Go to casting director workshops to get your face in front of as many casting directors as possible so they will hopefully consider calling you in throughout the season (3) Work out and stay fit (4) Take an occasional class to brush up on your technique.
We are "Comedy Workshop of San Diego". This is an active participation workshop. As a group, we offer our troupe members a chance to discover, develop and hone the craft of comedy and theater. Professionals and nonprofessionals are encouraged to share their zest for life and laughter. Guests within the entertainment business will be invited to share their stories and skills with the members at workshop training and special events. Members are encouraged to participate by sharing their skills and ideas during activities, education and performance. Throughout the workshop, we will present elements of the craft at many levels, focusing on beginning, basic and intermediate skills.
