Tyler Perry is offering to pay for your laughter.
The Tyler Perry Studios Extras Casting Department needs men and women 18 and older to participate in the recording of a studio audience. In other words, to provide the laugh track for Perry’s television shows. Basically, you show up, a comedian entertains you for a while, you split your sides laughing and the studio people record it so they’ll have laugh tracks. Ha!
If interested you need to be available for four to six hours on Friday. The recording takes place at Tyler Perry Studios here in Atlanta and the pay is $50.
To sign up see TPSExtras.com and click on the “Audience Member Information” tab for full details. If they select you, they’ll call.
Keep in mind there are numerous policies surrounding this laughing gig. First, don’t think you’re going to show up with an entourage. You’ll need to provide legal ID and only those persons previously contacted will be admitted.
Second, don’t think you’re going to be posting pictures of you and Tyler on your Facebook page. Oh, no. Photography is banned.
Third, after your experience as a Tyler Perry laugh tracker, you need to take it to your grave. Perry makes you sign a hefty confidentiality agreement saying you won’t spill any details. The agreement expressly bans talking to the Los Angeles Times, New York Times or New York Post. (But not the AJC?)
Anyway, this sounds like an amusing way to make 50 bucks. Good luck!
