Hello and welcome to one of our shoutouts for projects casting around the U.K. As always there’s a mix of opportunities for all ages, abilities, and locations but do remember to check if you fit the bill before applying.

Grooming Brand Comedy Sketch

A well-known men’s grooming brand is creating a short comedy sketch for its social media pages and looking to cast two performers with strong comic abilities.

Ed is a role for male talent, aged 18–35. He’s jealous of his best mate’s beard and is trying to up the ante by styling his own facial hair in increasingly extreme ways. You’ll need a short to medium length beard and be ready to shave completely for the shoot.

Mitchell is for a male actor, aged 20–35. He intimidates Ed with his fantastically groomed beard and, after a few drinks, is drawn into the battle of the beards, which he eventually wins. You’ll need a very full beard that can be trimmed or shaped by a professional barber.

The sketch shoots for one day in Central London between Aug. 14–16 and pays £200.
