Auditions for Game On Game Off

The producers of Game on Game Off are looking to deepen our bench of actors.  Cast changes every month and rehearsal are minimal.  Comedy improv experience is a plus.  A desire to play and have fun is required.

Jade Winters – seasoned TV comedy writer: Think Shonda Rimes, Tina Fey, Salma Hayak, or Brett Somers.

Rose Lafferty – Comedienne – everyone loves Rose.  She’s like Betty White, Goldie Hawn, Wanda Sykes and Whoopie Goldberg all rolled up into one.

Jenny Witherrow – Girl-next-door starlet, super duper nice.  She may have a secret side as a nuclear physicist.

Stanley Bitterman – Barely closeted snarky character actor, loves to kvetch about anything and everything

Peter St. David – International star – wild, raucous, loves booze and cars

Bobby Roberts – Former child star making a comeback – the “straight man” in the panel of celebrities.

Rey Flambeaux – the game show host, also a “straight man” for comedic purposes.  Any gender.

Benji – the stage manager with a heart of gold.  The character is modeled after Scooter from the Muppet Show.  Any gender.

Pat McClintock – the Executive Producer – a kazillionaire who loves discovering new talent.  Any gender.


The audition will consist of comedy improv exercises and some cold reads from the script. No additional prep is required. Please plan on being present for the entire 2 hours.


Performances are currently slated for the following dates and will include a pick up rehearsal either the Friday eve before or the Saturday morning prior to the show.
Sunday January 12th, 2pm at Il Vinaio wine bar in Mesa

About Us

The musical duo: "The Rhythm and the Flavor"

  Mike Anderson and Laurelann Porter are, collectively, The Rhythm & The Flavor. With Laurelann on sultry, smooth, bluesy vocals and Mike accompanying her on acoustic guitar they have developed a sound that stems from what they both believe to be the roots of all culture: the rhythm and the flavor. Performing a mix of original songs and pop music covers from the decades, especially the 80s, they seek to reinvent familiar songs by breaking them down to their core essence and offering loungey-blusey versions of some hidden gems and some favorite classics. When people have demanded to know “But who is the flavor and who is the rhythm?” Laurelann responds: “I’m the flavor, of course!”

Our Current Creative Project

Game On Game Off, an immersive, improv-based show created by Arizona-based artists Mike Anderson and Laurelann Porter.  Inspired by our favorite game show when we were both kids, the show takes a "Noises Off" approach to looking at comedy from the front and back stage areas. Zany and fun entertainment for all.

Our Life as Creative Partners

Most of the time we like to chill out in our backyard by the pool and write music together.  But we also love to engage in creative writing, film and video production, photography, and international traveling. We also love board games.  This photo was taken at our favorite hostel in Itacaré,Bahia,Brazil:  "Mais Que Nada" hostel, owned by a great blues singer, herself, Sandy Hill.
