Call for Extras – Ronnie Chieng

Ronny Chieng: International Student is a pilot for a comedy series starring stand-up comedian and actor Ronny Chieng. Chieng has had a meteoric rise since winning the Best Newcomer at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2012. He is a regular performer at Edinburgh Fringe and Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival. Chieng recently joined the multi-Emmy-award-winning ‘The Daily Show’ (US) as a fulltime correspondent.

We are seeking people to volunteer as ‘university students’ in scenes being shot at Melbourne University and in the surrounding Carlton area.

If you are between 20 & 30 years of age; are available from Monday 23rd to Friday 27th of November; can provide a laptop; can transport yourself to Melbourne Uni and the surrounding Carlton area; are keen to experience the inner workings of a professional TV shoot and would love to see yourself on the small screen then we want to hear from you!

Crowd volume will be the key to making these scenes work, so we encourage you to tell your friends and spread the word.

To register your interest, please forward your name; email address; mobile number; home address and a selfie image to extras casting coordinator Lisa Richardson at

One of the scenes features ‘university students’ working on laptops; if you can provide your own laptop, please advise in your email. It would also be helpful to include your mode of transport.

See you on set!
