Seeking immediately- actors/comedians with incredible comedy chops to portray a comic Rabbi at actual weddings, bar mitzvahs & other life cycle events. Casting states: "In addition to professional pay, each program is approximately just 20-25 minutes in length. Open to all ages 18 and up as you will be playing your age, and not a stereo-typical 75 year old rabbi. However, you MUST have a Catskills/Borsht Belt comic sensibility a la Billy Crystal, Jackie Mason, Shecky, Rickles, Jan Murray, Freddie Roman, etc. He is our front man - a hilarious "EMCEE" who has the audience in the palm of his hand within the first few seconds. A great actor or great stand-up alone will not do, as what's really needed is a melding of both! Very flexible schedule--if you're not available you don't have to accept a particular gig when offered to you. Also, very easy rehearsal schedule as we'll simply chat over the phone or via Zoom. Additionally, we have troupes in a variety of cities throughout the U.S. and Canada so if you relocate, you can possibly have a job waiting for you! We are looking for talented performers who really get this character and who could take advantage of this unique opportunity & program! We look forward to hearing from you.
