'Funniest People' to scout Baltimore for budding talent

October 10, 1990|By Kevin Brown

The producers of the ABC television series "America's Funniest People" will roll into Baltimore this weekend, complete with cameras and crew, in search of the city's funniest people.

The zaniness will begin at 7 a.m. Friday on the parking lot at WBSB-FM, 3701 Malden Ave., where the crew from Vin Di Bona Productions will be joined by B-104's Glenn Beck and Pat Gray. Individuals who have amusing or unusual talents, ranging from joke-telling and funny faces to lip-syncing, unique impressions or proficiency at making strange animal sounds will be auditioned until 8:30 a.m.

The crew will then move to the Kaufmann Pavilion at the Inner Harbor (near the Maryland Science Center), where they will audition from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. On Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. the crew will be at Brown's Wharf in Fells Point. Finally, on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., auditions will be held in The Quad at Fraternity Row on the University of Maryland, College Park campus.

Those whose antics are aired on the weekly program (Sundays at 8:30 p.m., Channel 13) will be eligible for $10,000 in prize money.
