Hi fellow pups! I’m producing a web series — comedy skits from POV-dog.

The casting call is May 21 in West Hollywood Park, starting at one o’clock, with the last sign-up at three o’clock.  Most roles require your dog to be at a sit / stay training level.  Some roles might require more than that. We’re looking for pets with charm, personality and expressive faces. I’ve got six skits in the pipeline, one is already cast. I’m sure the dogs I meet will inspire more.

I used to write skit comedy for the comedy troupe, Laughworks, and I was an improv actor with Split Second Theatre. I’ll be employing skills and techniques developed through those experiences.  These skits focus on dogs and what they think as their people interact with life.

DATE: May 21, 2017
TIME: 1:00 – 4:00 (last sign-up @3:00 pm)
PLACE: West Hollywood Park, by the picnic tables
(N. Robertson Blvd. entrance)
