Picnicface wants you!

Comedy Network TV series seeks audience June 16


As most Haligonians in the know are aware of, awesome local comedy octet Picnicface is busy spinning laughs into gold with their brand new TV series, shooting the first season, 13 30-minute episodes, now in Halifax.

How would you---yes, YOU---like to be part of it? They'll be filming a big crowd scene in central Halifax this coming Thursday, June 16. They need volunteers to help fill up the scene. Anyone interested will be asked to watch a basketball game of some sort (further details are shrouded in comedy mystery). That is all.

Any age or description are welcome, including kids, though anyone under the age of 18 MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

You can expect to be on set for approximately six hours on Thursday morning. If you register, you will be contacted with more specific details closer to the shoot day, including location, exact times and wardrobe notes.

Here’s how to register: Please go to and create your own Talent Profile. Select “Picnicface June 16th VOLUNTEERS” from the Project list. Upload all your contact info and some pictures and you’re in.

And if you're reading this and going, "Who the hell are these guys and why would I sign up to watch a six-hour basketball game?" check this.
