I wish I got samples at these audishes

More yummy audishes!! This must be back to fast food season.

Thursday it was a spot for my fav Frosty provider. This one was actually pretty funny. Starts out with a girl on a date who orders salad...with dressing...with bacon...with a burger..."you know, like a garnish."

Today I spent my lunch getting to and from a production studio, all so that I could say: "Hi, Steve." Thanks alot, StoveTummys. You make my favorite lunch cookie, oatmeal choco chip, and I was pumped to talk about your sammiches.

Oh well, at least I got a bus back to the office & saved some cab fare.

Another two-in-one audish today, my favs. This time both for the same McRestaurant. The first spot I read three times before it clicked, and the second was a one take audish. Apparently it is easier for me to be 'upbeat and kind of sly' than it is to be 'relaxed and enlightened.'

iO Audish

iO is having Harold Team audishes....

copied from:

  • iO will be holding auditions for placement on the Harold Team roster on Sunday, August 19th from Noon until 5pm.
    To be eligible to audition you MUST have completed the iO Training Center course of study and your 5B (Performance Level) run of shows in Chicago or Los Angeles. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE.
    To sign up for an audition slot, please call the office at (773) 880-0199 between the hours of 11am and 5pm. Calls regarding auditions will not be taken before 11am.
    You will be assigned a non-negotiable time, and calls will be taken until all of the slots are full (at which time a notice will be posted here). When calling, you can only sign up yourself to audition.
    Please come dressed appropriately with a headshot and resume, which includes your contact information. If you do not have a headshot, please bring as current a photo as possible. If you have any further questions, please email the Harold Commission at

"Please come dressed appropriately with a headshot and resume, which includes your contact information. " This is a duhsies that applies to every audish... although as we talked about a few posts back, they probably mean biz casual, not hot pants & tank tops.

A special inside note on the harold audish- if it is the same as it has been in the past, your group will do a harold piece that makes it to the second game if you are lucky. I have a special place in my heart for the harold audish as that is how my team came together. Six of us has gotten the same time, practiced harolds, and approached the audition as a matinee show. We showed up to find 2 random people added to our time slot. After quick introductions, we had a great audish. There are things from that 'matinee' that I can clearly recall as best moments ever. Eventually we were put on the schedule and have been together for about a year. The first 6 were people who had not been put on a team right out of classes, and the other 2 had been cut from the schedule before.

It has been said about this business before in different forms, and I really believe this is true: preparation + luck + persistence = success.
