Keep it animated and fun, and speak loudly above the music! This should show your whole body.
Emcee: Show us your best crazy character improv skills. Larger than life characters like Beetlejuice, the Mask, Harley Quinn are the inspiration for this character, so show us some improv, some bad pun jokes and introduce and upcoming act. You can use music if you wish.

If you do not have a reel, please record 1-2 minutes of a pop song (please check your sound and your mic so that we get a clean recording without peaking the mic) and then use this video to learn the Time Warp and record yourself doing it 1 time through (starting at 1:15 on the video)
If you are auditioning for more than 1 position, please submit just one video, less than 3 minutes if possible.
