The Jobs thread

BizCastr is a digital media company that creates and broadcasts reality webseries about dynamic businesses and the people who work there. OK, that’s the technical definition. What do we really do? We make really fun and entertaining reality shows for the internet. Through entertaining, character-driven episodes, businesses and viewers can interact like never before! Taking advantage of the power of reality videos and digital marketing, BizCastr produces a level of brand recognition and customer loyalty that engages and creates a loyal following for businesses.

BizCastr is creating a weekly web show, BizBuzz, that focuses on recapping the episodes for that week. In the style of Talk Soup/Tosh.0; this show will be more of a roast and comedy driven series rather than a newscast. Hosted by a comedian, BizBuzz is a chance for BizCastr viewers to find out what happened that week and laugh their butts off. This show is meant to engage audiences and become its own stand alone show with the right talent; some audience might tune into bizcastr.tv just to watch “HOST” rather than the actual episodes.

HOST- stand-up/background in comedy is required. MALE or FEMALE capable of writing a weekly 5min. webisode about BizCastr’s shows for that week. Ability to work well with a side-kick if needed or work hold their own by themselves. We are interested in finding someone dedicated to the time this project requires on an on-going, indefinite, weekly basis. The ideal person would have an engaging/likeable on camera personality, funny (duh), time to dedicate to writing the weekly script (may have room to riff but jokes must be written), shooting on a weekly basis, and dedicated to creating an overall hilariously fantastic show.

Auditions are on 6/27
Callbacks are on 7/3
