Casting Call Audition for an Elon Musk Impersonator (Toronto)


We are seeking a talented actor to portray Elon Musk in a 5-minute comedy skit for the Toronto Tech Mixer event on Wednesday, May 10th, 2023, from 6pm-9pm. It is at an office at 255 Front ST W. The event will have 150 attendees and will include food and drink.

The skit will be a reenactment of the infamous BBC interview where Elon Musk dominated the interviewer in a heated debate. The scene will include a surprise guest announcement, a music cue, and a dramatic finish where Elon slams the interviewer into a foldable table, breaking it. No prior stunt experience or physical strength is required as it is mainly play-acting for theatrical effect. An example table slam is this video.

The actor playing the interviewer is already onboard and is a very physically fit person who has agreed to participate in the table slamming scene.

You will show up, I will have you in a prep room with my assistant, they will cue you on stage, and then you can leave afterwards or hang out and eat some pizza/beer. People in the audience will be cheering and laughing throughout as you are a surprise guest entertainment for the night.

The pay rate for this gig is $150CAD for the 5-minute performance.
