So...a sitcom intensive, but different. There are so many sitcoms out there right now that it would be silly to ignore the working opportunities that we can gain from not only going out and auditioning for these shows, but also having the refined skills and experience to knock it out the park.
Watching actors who really know how to nail sitcom is quite a spectacle. I know for myself, I'd found it a struggle to figure it out “Is it 3 cam or single cam”, or “should I hit the switch here or here”, or “how can I make this funnier”, the list goes on.
I mean...look at the genius of the cast of FRIENDS or BIG BANG THEORY shows, and what it did for their careers. To be a successful sitcom actor isn’t natural per say, it’s a skill. Just watch how the likes of Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons progressed over the course of their careers...it’s remarkable. They learned and executed a top class skill, to compliment their natural talent.
