NBC Diversity Showcase Audition 2015: Comedic Instincts
So, here’s what I submitted for the NBC Diversity Showcase for 2015. They provide a number of scenes for participants to self-tape and submit. I did one called “DATE PREP.”
It was interesting for me to try to figure out the comedy. Comedy is really tricky. Finding a balance. Should it be over-the-top? Like a sitcom? Or what? And where do I fit into it? What is Carl the funny guy like? For me, a lot of what I find funny in some TV sitcoms have to do with characters being neurotic. So I kinda went for that approach. In my mind, I asked myself, how each of the characters in FRIENDS would do a scene ha ha.
