Casting call for Indie Comedy Film : “Brick Wall”
Union / Non-Union: Non-Union Production Type: Independent Project
LOCATION: Dallas TX
Synopsis: Seven comedians compete at the Giggle house’s monthly head-to head comedy competition. The winner is given free stage time and a bottle of the house tequila. The losers die on stage. This dark comedy pits a group of comedians in a fight for their lives over a bottle of half-grade tequila. Off-stage and onstage, this show will keep you asking: why are they doing this? You’ll have to see to find out.
-Al [MALE] [AGE 18-23] Al is a recent high-school grade that is trying standup
for the first time. He is horrified to find out the “life-or-death” rules of the contest
and is constantly worried he is next to meet his fate
-RICKY [MALE] [AGE 21-35] Ricky is the regular host of the comedy
competitions; he is a larger than life-guy, very in your face nice but also very selfdeprecating.

-SCOTT [MALE] [AGE 23-30] A young and cunning professional critic who
arrives at the comedy club to fuel his article about the comedy scene. Like Al, he
is new to the rules and somewhat disturbed when he finds them out.
-GARY [MALE] [AGE 23-28] Gary is a young comedian who is by far the most
successful of the group. He is very arrogant and a bit cruel to others, but at the
same time he tries to be the realist of the group. He points out the hypocrisy in
others and is a firm believer that comedy is a solitary craft.
