Janice (Australian)

Must be from Australia (English speaking)
We're looking for someone with strong comic ability who can get the right balance between warmth and cynicism. Janice is Les's long-suffering assistant, constantly picking up the pieces. Having the ability to handle Les, she takes on a mothering role. We can see that the reason that she sticks with Les is that her role offers her the opportunity to be the real power behind the throne. She has a strong sense of pride being a divorces single mother.

Les (Australian)

Must be from Australia (English speaking)
We're looking for someone with great comic timing. He should have a big presence with a sense of over-inflated ego, while retaining a vulnerability.

In fact, his credibility is zero & the success that he's had is down to American Express and his assistant.
