Hello,

My name is Silvia Georgieva, and I am a 3rd-year film student at the University of Essex in Colchester. Currently, my team and I are working on a short film about a retired stand-up comedian, Jim Parker, who is forced to face his troubled past. The movie further explores the troubled psychological state of the character and his efforts to hide it behind his humour.

At the moment, we are looking for male comedians 50+ who might be interested in gaining some experience in film. The movie will be shot in Colchester in the period between 26th and 30th March. We are ready to cover all travel expenses and provide food on set, but unfortunately, we are not able to provide any other sort of payment due to a very limited budget.

If you are interested or have any further questions, please feel to message me.

Best wishes,

Silvia Georgieva

Any other parts or ideas for someone not 50+? I have too much time. My funny bones aren't currently in use.

Reminiscent of The Entertainer - a great film starring Laurence Olivier, available on DVD.
