Every needs a moment in the sun. Well, here comes yours! I recently found this casting listing where an LA Production Company, Lindsey Casting, is looking for the most eclectic nerds in the world for a new reality series: King of the Nerds.
Obviously, they want the over the top, obsessive guys…whether it be the hardcore LARPers, the comic book hermits, and the drunk-on-the-Dew gamers, but I challenge the Mom’s Basement readers to go one step further. Read the listing:
I’m currently casting a show called King of the Nerds which is a Nerd/geek Competition based show, designed to showcase the passions and knowledge of nerds/geeks between the ages of 21 and 30, as they compete to win a cash prize. It will be hosted by 2 of the original cast members from Revenge of the Nerds. We are looking for gamers, comic book fanatics, movie buffs, programmers, scientists, chess masters, role players, inventors, you name it. It would be absolutely amazing if you could help me find the best of the best. I’d love to speak with the champion in Magic the Gathering, or the top dog of WoW, or your smartest friend who can write a program for anything, etc. Any and all recommendations for candidates or suggestions of who to speak with would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and have a wonderful day.
King of the Nerds
Now, I’ve read a lot of casting calls and I really appreciate that this casting director is NOT a nerd. Probably Nerd Light, where she knows of the geeky things, but isn’t the type of person to be on the show. She is open for suggestions…there is probably an amazing geek art that she hasn’t covered in her description.
Where are my geek crafters? YOU belong on this show.
All of my Etsians…you could be the King of Nerds with your moustache hairbands, pixelated tshirts, polymer zombie jewelry and scarves with Pokemon crocheted into it. Let’s represent!!! If anyone wants to contact Ms. Shoemaker via phone, I have a contact number as well. Message me at my Etsy store for more information!
I want to see one of us on TV! Melvin FTW!
