Exclamation SUMMER CASTING: THREE (3) New Writers for DSI Witness News

SUMMER CASTING: THREE (3) New Writers for DSI Witness News

Submit by Friday June 4th


http://news.dsicomedy.com/

From Head Writer Aaron Keck,

Hi all!

Having just taken over as head writer for our news-parody sketch show DSI Witness News, I’m gearing up to take the show to the next level, with more content and more avenues of distribution. My first push is to add new writers with joke-writing experience and an interest in local news.

We’ve been on the air at WCHL 1360 AM radio for over a year now, every weekday at 8:20 am and 5:55 pm—and this summer we’re going to start looking for even more ways to get our material out there, to make DSI Witness News an even bigger part of the community than it already is.

So we’re auditioning for three new writers, and I’m looking for you to submit material for consideration. If you’ve not seen or heard the show, we’ve designed it in the style of SNL’s Weekend Update, with a mix of headline jokes and longer character bits, all based on local news and events in Chapel Hill-Carrboro. (All of our radio pieces are archived at http://news.dsicomedy.com/)

If you’re at all interested in being a part of our writing team, great!

Send me an email at news@dsicomedy.com and tell me about yourself.

If you want to audition, write up eight jokes based on local headlines (Think Weekend Update rather than The Onion: Actual headline, Your punchline) and send those to me by Friday June 4th.

(You can visit http://1360wchl.com or http://newsobserver.com for local stories to use as inspiration. National headlines are okay too, if you can give them a local twist.)

Thanks—looking forward to hearing from you!

Aaron Keck

Is this still valid? I'd love to work on DSI Witness News...for your mom...in bed...NOT! See, I've memorized every comedic cliche imaginable. Oh, I also know how to use profanity in addition to the word "gay" in a sentence to create INSTANTANEOUS comedy!

Wow, you are SO not selling it. But yeah, go ahead and submit headline jokes.

Yeah, what Zach said. Sorry I didn't reply to your last, Beau--my laptop's been blocking me from accessing the forums for some reason.

And that goes for anyone and everyone who's interested: send me an email and let me know you want to come on board! We're always looking for fresh voices!
