Spike TV searching for comedian to host late night talk show
Hey, comics: Spike TV may be looking for you to host a late night talk show. The network has begun a nationwide talent search for an “every man” kind of comic to host a project currently in development.
Unlike the typical Hollywood and celebrity focused program, this late night show will focus on ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
The producer, Tom Bheers (The Deadliest Catch) is looking for undiscovered comedic talent who mirror the regular, everyday guys the show will target.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the right individual,” said Beers. “We want that laid back guy with whom every dude wants to be friends. He drinks beer, loves sports, video games and is unassuming and approachable.”
Open auditions will be held in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Dallas for two males who appear to be in their late twenties to mid-thirties. Candidates selected will be flown to Los Angeles for a screen test with network executives.
