I'm hoping that "third time is the charm." My best audition was in 2016, San Jose as a mix of silly and serious.
I did not get rich and famous. I did connect with the judge, so I was surprised when I didn't get a call back audition. While it was a good act, it just might have been "bad timing."
2018 might be ideal timing for a silly/serious act. But it isn't really my style to repeat the same charge into a brick wall and hope the wall moves.
So. for 2018 I will do a (mostly) "all silly act." I'll start with some (mediocre) standup comedy, segue with a "dramatic monologue" and end with a "silly song."
The odds of winning the enitre show via "only comedy" are very long. (My preference is to use the silly to enhance the serious, and use the serious [dark] to enhance the silly [winner].)
For this 2018 audition, I will target "certainly amusing" vs risking for a "laugh out loud" funny, in the hopes that I can talk producers into letting me repeat my 2016 audition (which did risk for a "laugh out loud" funny) for a callback round (instead of mediocre standup.)
If I do have to repeat "mediocre standup" for the callback round, I can certainly do that.
Then for the judge cuts, I can hopefully return to my original 2016 plan where I do "fun with random Mel B" for 45 seconds, then 45 seconds of a serious song.
We'll see what happens....
