This is a one hour comedy special being made for BBC2 and is set around a characterful yet loving family who live in the West Country. It is being filmed in London between 11 – 23 May 2015 (with some rehearsal beforehand).

We are looking for two boys aged 8 – 10 years old who live in & around Bristol / Bath / Somerset / Wiltshire / Gloucestershire / Dorset. THEY MUST HAVE A WEST COUNTRY ACCENT. The accent is extremely important as the boys are part of a family and we want that family to be believably from the area. We are looking for the following:
BERT, aged 8-10 yrs old, quirky looking: This character is very geeky and nerdy, he is quirky looking. He is an aspiring magician whose tricks usually go wrong but he always keeps on trying. The young actor needs to have good comic timing and be confident, as he has a lot to do in the programme. He must have a West Country accent and cannot be allergic to dogs.
DAN, aged 8-10 yrs old, blonde hair & blue eyes: This character needs to look like a young Russell Howard. He is a sweet, endearing, likeable boy. Ideally he should have a slight lazy eye. The young actor needs to have good comic timing and be confident. He must have a West Country accent and cannot be allergic to dogs.
