CBS – Diversity Sketch Comedy Showcase


CBS will sponsor its sixth talent showcase for diverse sketch comedians in January 2013 in Los Angeles. “The CBS Network is known as ‘The Tiffany Network’ and their showcases are known as the ‘Rolls Royce’ of showcases, featuring the dynamic duo of Rick Najera and Fern Orenstein, CBS VP Casting, who change actors’ professional lives and provide them access to open doors within the entertainment industry,” said Josie Thomas, CBS Senior Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer.

January 2012 Showcase will be Directed by Rick Najera in Association with AFTRA, American Indians in Film and Television, East West Players, Nosotros, SAG and The Robey Theatre Company.

The showcase is focused on African-American, Asian-American, Latino, Native American, Pacific Islander, LGBT actors and performers with disabilities. Actors should possess extensive sketch comedy experience. Each audition will require a one-minute original sketch comedy monologue.

CBS Entertainment executives, casting directors from the Network’s primetime and daytime programs, as well as casting directors from shows on other networks will be on hand at the Showcase. An invitation has also been extended to casting directors from production companies that work with CBS. This is a great opportunity to build your resume.
