Casting Call

(Amateur - Unpaid)

Looking to cast 2 characters for series two of ‘Jakko the Clown’

Following the positive response from series one, we are excited to push the boat out further with series two and looking for key roles to join our little production in Brighton.

Comedy mockumentary web series that follows a Brighton based agoraphobic clown called Jakko.

Brighton

Shooting Dates

Roles

Jakko’s mum (Julie)
50 – 65

Julie is a rough diamond. Thinks the world of her son and isn’t afraid to stand up to anyone that threatens him. She’s got a big heart and works hard but swears like a trooper and smokes like a chimney. She’s quick tempered but you can’t help love her.

Jakko’s Dad (Bill)
50 – 65

Heavy set – stubble or beard. Scottish accent beneficial but not necessary!

Jakko has been estranged from his dad for many years but rekindles the relationship. Bill is a down and out alcoholic who’s borderline homeless and like Jakko, is a terrible clown. Bill has a good heart deep down but has and wants no responsibilities in life

If you feel like you’d be interested in any role then please comment and I’ll get straight back to you!

Once again, I must stress this is a passion project and is therefore unpaid.

Many thanks

Outdated Comic

We are looking to cast the role of an old fashioned washed out comedian who tells gags that belong in the 70's. he's an over confident character with a dirty mind and an upfront approach who knows deep down he has no one and is outdated and isolated. The episode will show this character conversing with other comedians at a stand up comedy event before going on stage himself and failing miserably. Huge influence is David Earls characters as 'Kev' in Derek and 'Brian Gittins' in After. Life
