Well that's exactly whats happening . The third annual SCOUT Chicago Festival , which is FREE and open to all, will spotlight a TON of comedic talent ready to be discovered at festival showcases being held for network and cable television casting executives. What!? Yeah.
According to SCOUT Festival co-founder Marisa Ross over thirty top-casting executives will spend the weekend in Chicago scouting comedy talent. Executives from CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, USA, Showtime, Comedy Central and MTV, along with major talent agencies will be in town to attend the talent showcases. Executives will also participate in two free industry/casting focused panel discussions aimed at helping young talent get in the business. Presumably agents will also check out some of Chicago's great weekly comedy clubs & shows.
