Michaelmas Week 0
I Swear I'm Not Doing A Bit is a new comedy panel show set to be recorded in August/September and broadcast during Michaelmas, and we're looking for panellists to give witty answers and compete in silly games. There are two types of panellists: Team Captain (on every episode) and Guest Panellist (in one episode) with there being 2 teams of 2 or 3 panellists (like in HIGNFY or WILTY) so if you would like to be considered for Team Captain, please let us know when you get in touch.
While improv skills will definitely be useful, panellists will be given a lot of the questions beforehand so they can come up with answers, and we encourage anyone who's familiar with the format to apply. The recording will be edited with sound effects and pauses removed so panellists will be able to take their time in thinking of answers and that pause can be edited out so the final product sounds more professional. We don't expect anyone applying to have experience in things similar to this because it is a very new thing for Cam FM and Cambridge theatre in general so all we're looking for is people who are excited to take part in something new to the scene.
Auditions will take place w/b 10/08 over discord*, and to sign up please send a message to I Swear I'm Not Doing A Bit or email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll ask you a few simple questions and invite you to the server.
*We have chosen Discord because the server feature allows us to control who receives what information which is important for the preparation of a panel show, and the video chat feature allows us to hold auditions.
