Project Main Details

Best thing to happen to phone since its invention 
We are casting for an announcer to wrap up a humorous spot about Alexander Graham Bell and Mr. Watson discussing giving away phone free. The announcer will come in with a regular voice to give the details of the offer. The offer is Free Home Phone with any Internet speed, and the tagline is "The Best thing to happen to phone, since the invention of the phone." The key to this read will be how that line is played. We want the double use of the word "phone" to be the key to the humor. We would recommend doing versions of that line with different inflections to show your take on it.

We like our announcer voices to sound genuine, like a trustworthy next door neighbor or friend. We do NOT like the car-salesman, movie trailer type voice for spots like this.

This is a multi speaker script, but we are only casting for the announcer in this audition. All lines are shown for context, but we only need you to read for Announcer.

We are a rural internet, cable and phone company.

Script Details

ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL: Mr. Watson. I’ve done it!
WATSON: Done what, Mr. Bell?
ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL: I’ve invented the “telephone.” (Big emphasis on telephone, as if it were a new word that he just came up with and no one has heard of before - verbal equivalent of air quotes)
WATSON: Amazing, sir! (pause) You know, we should give that away for free!
ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL: What? Free? (Big pause) Brilliant!
ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL (ALT LINE): Free? That will never work!
ANNOUNCER: That’s right. Sign up for the area’s fastest Internet, and get home phone FREE.
It’s the greatest thing to happen to phone, since the invention of the phone.
