CBS Sketch Comedy Showcase Audition Workshop presented by CBS

Restricted Access. By Invitation Only.

The objective of this workshop is to give actors an idea of what is expected of them when auditioning for the CBS Sketch Comedy Showcase in January. If cast, the process is rigorous and you are expected to come in with material/ideas, be an active participant. Rehearsals begin in the Fall to ensure the best possible material is developed for the showcase. 

The workshop is an invaluable tool and an AMAZING opportunity to gain insight!

Preparation Details:

  • It is critical that you come prepared and not just try to “wing it” the day of.

  • Actors should prepare 1-3 minutes of comedic character work. Original material is best.

  • Do NOT prepare a comedic monologue from a play since the showcase is really based on original material.  (Think Saturday Night Live).

  • Please bring your headshot and resume the day of.

  • Participants must be registered to the NALIP Media Summit

Speaker: Rick Najera (Director, CBS Sketch Comedy Showcase), Fern Orenstein (Producer, CBS Sketch Comedy Showcase and CBS SVP of Casting)
