This is how TV works in regards to variety artists. This is why it’s hard to be on TV doing unicycling or similar. They always seem to want you the very next day, or sometimes the same day! I’m tossing this one out in case anyone in the L.A. area can do it:
Dear Mr. Foss,
I know this is extremely late notice, but… If you are in the greater Los Angeles area and would like a chance to appear on the Ellen DeGeneres show, we are looking for a professional unicyclist to perform tomorrow in our big outdoor show.
Please give me a call if you might be available.
“The Ellen DeGeneres Show”
3000 West Alameda Ave.
Burbank, CA 91523
(818) 260-5590 office
(818) 260-5681 fax
If you respond to this request, please tell Wendi the referral came from me. I don’t get a commission (I don’t know who she is), but she might wonder how other unicyclists know to contact her!
