We're a very popular, progressive-minded natural health news website (reaching over 1.2 million readers a month), and we're looking for 1-2 hilarious, skilled improv actors to participate in edgy, low-budget skits making fun of the FDA, drug companies, fast food restaurants, weight loss scams, school lunch programs and other topics related to health, nutrition or fitness.

All filming takes place in Tucson.

No specific requirements on age or gender. We need talent from various age ranges. Ability to help us WRITE skits would be a huge benefit (and would pay more).

Skills needed: Improv comedy, impersonations (British, Cowboy, TV announcer, doctor, etc.) and a lot of off-the-wall thinking. You'll need to do your own makeup, if required. Remember: This is low-budget. Filmed on HD handycams with steadicam motion dampeners. We work only from outlines, not completed scripts. Larry David style.

Pay is minimal, but exposure is huge. This is also a tremendous opportunity to showcase your improv or comedy writing skills. Actors will be fully credited and can use finished videos in their portfolios. Viewership is expected to exceed one million unique views over the next six months.

Our website is for your reference. Also see our CounterThink cartoons to get an idea of how we think:

No aspiring models who can't act, please! Acting skill is FAR more important than looks. We need fun, hilarious people who like to get major exposure, earn some honest bucks and make some outrageous comedy skits!

Please reach us via email (preferred) or call us at 232-9300 if you have questions. Include a photo, a list of your acting experience and a video clip, if available, showcasing your improv skills.


  • Location: Tucson (East)
  • Compensation: $100 (or higher) per 10-minute episode, depending on skill and experience.
  • Principals only. Recruiters, please don't contact this job poster.
