Listed by View details

Funny men and women required for Comedy Murder Mystery Dinner Company for series of shows in chain restaurant throughout the year.

Laugh and Let Die are a comedy Murder Mystery company that have been performing for 6 years, and after experiencing massive growth in the last 12 months, we are looking to recruit local teams of actors for shows across the country.

We perform several different formats and themes, and the shows we are casting for here are our most popular two hander dinner party shows.

You will be playing multiple roles in the show, and the script we are asking you to provide the audition video with won’t necessarily be the role you get, but we think it will give us a good idea of whether you can perform the sort of comedy characters we are after.

The show is pretty much all improvisation, so you will have to be able to think on your feet. We do have prompt questions that the detective gives to the guests to read out if they are struggling (which is often!), so you can have some ready made responses up your sleeve.
The show is improvisation, but there is a script as well for beginners, which may sound counter intuitive but it works. We have been having newbies perform with the script in hand on a clipboard, and ready made jokes and retorts are in the script, so you will never be short of something to say. We are of course looking for you to come up with your own funnies as well though!

We are looking to book actors for a series of shows at chain restaurants across the country (confirmed dates and venues below, but there will be more), and we want a team of actors that will eventually be able to deliver the shows without support on the night from the company. Initially, you will be performing with an actor that has been with the company since its inception, and will give you lots of support. We are NOT looking for actors to do every date at every venue. E.g. If you live in Cardiff, then we will probably only be booking you for Cardiff dates! We are looking to build big company casts in all the areas we are working in so we have a big pool to draw on.

We are a comedy company and we are looking for funny people. We play it for laughs, there are no puzzles or codes to crack in our shows. We are there for the jokes!

We are giving you the first lines for one of our Detective Characters Jack (or Jacky) Frost, from our Game of Thrones spoof, Game of Groans.
We are looking for larger than life characters, who will fill a room. And we want you to make us laugh.

The fee is £70 per performance.
Call time at the venue is 6:00pm. Show time 7:00pm. On stage for about 45 mins, and then 3 x 20 minute segments between food courses. Finished (including clearing up) at around 11.00pm. Actual show finishes around 10.30pm.

We perform up and down the country and the business has blown up in the last twelve months. We have partnerships with Grosvenor Casino, CDG Restaurant Group, Match. com, Xtreme Events, Red Cactus Events, LastNightOfFreedom stag and hen parties, and many others, and are not expecting the growth of the business to slow down.
