Be the Host of Spike's New Late Night Show

March 11, 2010

Spike TV has embarked on a nationwide search to find undiscovered comedic talent for a new late-night talk show.  The series is being developed and executive produced by Thom Beers, owner of Original Productions (The Deadliest Catch, Ice Road Truckers, Ax Men, and Monster Garage).

The new late-night entry will differ from the typical late-night chatter of movie stars and politicos and will seek out ordinary people doing extraordinary things.  The host search will focus on the same types: undiscovered comedic talent who mirror the regular, everyday guys the show will target.

Casting directors will scour the country and hold open calls in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Dallas seeking two males who appear to be in their late twenties to mid-thirties.  The perfect candidate will have a likeable, regular-guy appeal with inherent comedic talent.  Candidates selected will be flown to Los Angeles for a screen test with network executives.

If you think you've got the comedic chops to be our host, come meet casting directors and prove it. Can't make it? Email us your name, age, contact info, recent photo, and a link to your online video to
