Nothing To Lose: A Stand-Up Show (Week 8 Corpus One Night Stand) is looking for a PRODUCER!
The show will chart the devastating highs and lows of Patrick Wilson and Elliott Wright's university days in a brand-new hour of stand up from the long-time acquaintances who brought you Apologies (★★★★ ½- The Tab), Stuart Brown’s Variety Hour (reviewer didn't show up), Speechless, Quinoa I & II, Lover Boy and various Footlights Smokers among other things.
We're looking for a Producer to help us put the show together. No experience necessary, most of all we just want someone who's enthusiastic and committed and we think would be fun to work with. Perfect for those who like their humour a little dark! We're planning on utilising some video sketches to spice up the show so if you have an especial interest or experience in getting involved with some filming then all the better.
If you're interested please send an application to Elliott (elw60) and Patrick (pw395) with the following...
1) why you want to get involved with the show
2) what experience you have (doesn't have to be previous theatre) and why you think it would be useful for the show
3) who is your favourite out of Elliott and Patrick and WHY? (choose carefully!)
