It's Pardis Parker time!

Halifax filmmaker/actor first Canadian to be selected for CBS showcase.

Posted by on Wed, Dec 16, 2009 at 1:36 PM


Everything’s coming up sunshine for Halifax filmmaker/actor/comedian Pardis Parker. He’s down in Los Angeles for CBS’s annual industry showcase. Over 3,000 performers were considered, but only 13 made the cut to show their stuff to invited network executives, casting directors, showrunners, managers and agents. Parker, the first Canadian to ever be selected, is in good company: Previous showcase talents include Nasim Pedrad (Saturday Night Live) and Wyatt Cenac (The Daily Show).

“I’m having a lot of fun preparing for the showcase,” writes Parker, who was discovered while performing stand-up at a comedy club. “The other guys in the showcase are really talented, and it’s great to work with a group of like-minded people.”

Parker, who just finished shooting a role in Rohan Fernando’s feature Snow, is currently in pre-production on his own film, “a modern take on Bollywood-style musicals.”
