Casting Call - Paid
Two Short Comedic Skits: Jeep Guy’s New House and Jeep Guy’s Erectile Dysfunction
Location: Tucson, Arizona
I am combining a casting call for two different short comedic skits for my new web series called, It’s a Jeep Thing. The description for each skit is below. Feel free to audition for either one or both!
Jeep Guy’s New House
It’s time for Jeep Guy to build a new house and he’s hired one of Tucson’s best architects to help with the design. But the plans aren’t really what Jeep Guy had in mind and he decides to make a few minor modifications to the design. Approximately 2 – 3 minute skit and is G rated (no adult languages or themes).
Architect: middle-aged man who can look/act like a professional architect.
Jeep Guy (JG): middle-aged man who knows what he wants in his house.
Estimated 4 hours of filming during one day at a location on NW side of Tucson. Date and time flexible, tentatively set for the first half of October.
Jeep Guy’s Erectile Dysfunction
Jeep Guy goes to the dentist to get his teeth cleaned, but ends up being treated for erectile dysfunction instead. This will be a 6 – 8 minute video and be PG rated for mild language and sexual themes. No nudity.
Cast members should have a great sense of humor, are not afraid to improvise and enjoy making people laugh.
Doctor/dentist: middle-aged or older man who can look/act like a doctor/dentist.
Jeep Guy (JG): middle-aged man who gets more than he bargained for when he visits the dentist.
Nurse/assistant: young (20s – 30s) attractive and sexy woman willing to help the doctor put JG through a series of unorthodox tests.
Wife: middle-aged woman to play JG’s wife.
Estimated 6-8 hours of filming during one day (either a Saturday or Sunday) at a location on NW side of Tucson. Date and time flexible, tentatively set for the second half of October. Possible additional 1-2 hours of filming on NW side of Tucson at different location.
