Actors auditioning must have a strong command of a range English accents and exceptional comedic timing and sensibilities. Monty Python nerds and their ilk are particularly encouraged to apply. Actors are sought to assume the roles of Cook, Moore, Bennett and Miller.

Sides will be provided at the audition, or actors may prepare a comedic British monologue from Beyond the Fringe, Monty Python, Rowan Atkinson, etc. Actors should prepare one short comedic British monologue (no more than four minutes in length) as well as bring a picture and resume, stapled together.
