OPEN AUDITION for DONALD TRUMP POLITICAL SATIRE COMEDY ALBUM

Donald Trump political satirical comedy album being recorded on May 6th in a studio on Chicago’s west side. Looking for voice talent to record the characters listed below. A few of the voices are distinguished because of their familiarity in the media. Accuracy is important for the voices of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in order to propel the narrative of the comedy album forward. Actors should be 18 yrs. or older.

Some important points regarding this gig:

1 ) This is a non-paying gig. Sorry, I would love to pay you, but I’m an impoverished creator like so many others. What I can do is:

  • Feed you well
  • Reimburse you for reasonable travel within Chicagoland (CTA, Metra, gas for short drives, limited as far as suburbs. In other words, I can’t pay for any flights/Amtraks in/out of Chicago. Those will be on your dime.)
  • Assure you that this will be a fun time with good people!

Here’s what’s required. **This is important**

1 ) You must be available for rehearsal here in Chicago on either Sunday April 22 and/or Sunday April 29. It would be best to be available for both, but just one is okay.2)  Recording in the studio occurs on SUNDAY, MAY 6TH.

YOU MUST BE AVAILABLE TO RECORD ALL DAY ON THAT DATE TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THIS GIG.

The studio date cannot be rescheduled. The owner of the studio has been gracious enough to donate studio time to project and cannot postpone.

3) Talent releases required.

Comedy album working title is “Donald J. Trump: A Very White House Con Job”. The urgency of recording the album within a few weeks time is important to make this project relevant. This album takes the form of a narrative with the voices of Trump, Bernie Sanders, Stacy Keach, Vladimir Putin, The Obamas, Hillary Clinton, Alex Jones, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and many others. To get a sense of what the goal is, search You Tube for “Richard Nixon: A Fantasy” by David Frye. It’s the inspiration for this work.

I’m the co-founder of The Underground Multiplex and have recorded podcasts for years. Feel free to Google and check out the site.

If you are interested, send an email to lewojeda@gmail.com with TRUMP COMEDY in the subject line. (Otherwise, I may consider it spam). I will then give instructions on how to send an audio audition recording to my private email.  THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST!

VOICES NEEDED:

The following characters have had significant media exposure

Barack Obama
Hillary Clinton
Michelle Obama (getting this character’s voice “right” not as important as the above two)

The following characters have had less media exposure, so mimicking does not have to be “on the nose”

Type of characterizations requested follow each name

Jared Kushner
   Real estate owner, self-absorbed like a mini-Donald Trump, but not as overtly offensive. More like a entitled hipster

 Don Trump, Jr.
   Perky, yes-man to father. Constant sparring with Kushner for dad’s attention. Cheerfy quality.

Melania Trump
    Long-suffering almost sullen. Accented and interested in rich life more than politics

Ivanka Trump
     Spoiled and entitled daddy’s girl. Valley girl type

Betsy DeVos
     Clueless, entitled rich woman who gradually goes a bit mental from the stress

Mike Pence
      Vice President and Yes man to president. Overtly self-effacing to president, but really wants his job.

Stormy Daniels
     Although a porn star, important not to overdo her as a “bimbo”. Through interviews she is self-respecting.

Omarosa Manigault
     Business-minded woman invited as a staffer to Trump White House

Rex Tillerson
     Former CEO of Exxon Mobil become Sec of State

The following characters are extras and do NOT require specific vocal qualities

ACTORS ARE ENCOURAGED TO TAKE ON MULTIPLE VOICES IF POSSIBLE. Minor changes from one extra character to another are all that’s needed. You’ve definitely got this.
