My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to working with you on your inquiry.

Hi,


I AM an inactive member of Actor's Equity. I live in Maryland and am going to have a web site with video by the end of the year. This is why I want input before I create my site.

Excellent. There are several companies that hire talent for Live Corporate Industrials.

Many of them are based in NYC. Would you be able to easily travel there for an audition ? Are you able to use a teleprompter and/or use an ear prompter ?

Additionally, there are also specific casting directors who specialize in this area. Most of them are NYC based as well.

If you are open to traveling, I will provide you with contact information. If not, I will see what I can find in your local area.

I am open to drive to NYC for an audition. I am also open to traveling to wheer I need to travel for the casting directors, also.


 


However, I am not sure if this is the same thing as I requested. I am looking to perform as a host or as a comedian or Master of Ceremonies for some of these corporate events.


Can you help me in that arena?

Expert:  Ask Veronica replied 2 years ago.
Understood. That is a different area. I will send you a list of contacts to work from in a bit.

Thanks,

Veronica

Apologies Mike, I had posted last night... There must be a glitch. Please confirm receipt of this post when you have a moment.

Once you have a professional color headshot, resume, and operational website with your stand-up, you are ready to market yourself.

Although I cannot guarantee a positive outcome, this is the process that even Talent Agents use when pitching their talent.

I would recommend starting out with an email pitch first inquiring how you can be listed on their roster.


1) Charter Talent

(E) info@chartertalent.com

They ask that you email your references, bio, pictures, and online video.

They will review your materials within 6 weeks and email you back letting you know if they can or can not use you for shows.

DO NOT CALL THEIR OFFICE

Important to note that any promotional materials you mail may be posted to their website and/or other promotional pages.


2) GigSalad
