GeneralPrank tv show opportunity. [modified] Pinmemberwizardzz13-Dec-12 4:34 
So, as some of you may know. I'm a part time comedian (yes, that's a called a setup, now run with it).
 
During the discussion last week about pranks, brought on by the nurse suicide, I mentioned that I hate comedians that rely on pranks of unsuspecting people.
 
This week, an old friend from high school that works in LA and does TV work (most notably on a show that rhymes with Greg Merguson) said she needed improv comedians from Chicago for a show that her friend was casting. The premise of the show is to prank unsuspecting people.
 
Now I'm not saying it was a sure thing by any means, but probably a higher chance than any other audition I'd go to.
 
I passed it up. I did pass it along to my friends, but I couldn't do that to people. I'll admit though, that if I didn't have a job and was struggling, it might be different.
 
[Edit]
Here is part of the ad, showing that it doesn't seem to be a lighthearted Candid Camera type show:
 
The cast will portray a variety of characters and test the morals of unsuspecting subjects. Actors will be required to create awkward and compromising situations and MUST be comfortable with delving into politically incorrect material, driving the scene to that unsettling place. Actors need to be quick-witted and willing and able to “push the limits” of the subject to get the desired reaction.
