Description:
Hello,
I'm looking for a few characters for a satirical talk show I create. I do all of the writing for the show, but you're still welcome to improvise within the bounds of any character.

The talk show mostly revolves around different sketches. Some sketches and characters consistently appear such as those being auditioned below. This is a satire "podcast", comedic improv skills come in handy. I prefer to cast people willing to participate for several episodes. Goal of production is one episode per month. episodes run ~20-30 minutes. Sketches may be for 4-5 minutes a piece (Rough estimate: 60 lines per sketch)

Please submit raw non-mixed/processed audio. I will mix all audio together during post. I prefer to hear everything raw with no compression or EQ or noise removal.

The goal of this project is to progress a hobby of writing and acting. All communication will be done through discord and email for a google calendar.

HELP
  FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
• Why is there a limit to 4 active projects per member?
While a project owner is welcome to have as many active projects running as they wish outside BTVA, the limit is imposed because having too many active projects can be somewhat "unrealistic". We want those who are auditioning to feel that each project is getting the attention and quality it deserves given auditioners themselves are putting in their own time and effort. Once a project owner flags a project as "Completed", they are welcome to create a new project.
• Can I audition more than once for a character?
The system is built to allow ONE audition per character. This is to avoid having a number of auditions from the same member and making the project owner have to listen to all of them. For now, if you or the project owner wishes you to submit another audition, the project owner will need to "Delete" your audition. The project owner can do this in the "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link.
• How do I flag a character as being Cast?
As a project owner you will see a "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link for each character. Clicking it will allow you to Cast, Backup or Pass an audition. Casting a character will prevent new auditions from being submitted for that character.
• Why do I need a valid email address?
If you audition for a project and are cast in a role, you will notified by email.
