CLASSES AND CONSULTS
HELLO! I'M KEN LAZER, CSA
Serious actors ask me all the time “What can I do to take my acting career to the next level? I’m going to auditions, working hard, and I’m not getting the results I want to get. What can I do to make myself stand out and book more roles?” I’m a casting director in the CSA with nearly 30 years experience in the casting industry. I’ve booked thousands of projects and I know exactly what it takes to help you stand out from your competition and book more jobs.* I’ve been teaching actors since 1995 and I love helping actors who are serious about taking their careers to the next level. When I am casting roles for films, TV, and national commercials, I can see anywhere between 30 to 40 actors for the same role. Many of the actors in the audition look alike, sound alike— and 95% of them are all making the same mistakes and never get a callback or book. Whether it’s a one-on-one coaching or consult session or in a class (both via Zoom), I would love to meet you and share these secrets, tips and tricks I’ve gathered over the past 30 years and help you advance your career. I can’t wait to meet you!
WHAT ACTORS ARE SAYING
CLASS STRUCTURE AND DESCRIPTIONS
The Secret Formula of Every Good Audition
In Class #1, you will learn the TOP 3 most important secret techniques that EVERY professional actor needs for a great audition. You will do 2 separate
commercials to practice these tools so you can understand exactly how they work and I will
prove why they will help your auditions.
Expect to get up in front of your camera at home several times to fully understand
these techniques. You need to learn these techniques before moving on to the next
The Power in Two Person Castings
In Class #2, you will see how things change when you’re auditioning with another person—whether you’re
auditioning for a role with a friend or cold reading with another actor in the casting
room. You need to know what techniques make you shine. Bring an actor, friend or
significant other of the opposite sex for this class so you can better “see” how these
techniques will be proven to work!
Technique & Application
In classes 1 & 2, we practice numerous techniques and now have the understanding of how & why they work. In Class 3, we practice with audition copy to understand how to choose the right tools for different auditions and how to best apply them when necessary.
TV & Film auditions are completely different from commercial auditions, but the techniques you’ve learned can be applied for a great audition regardless of the setting. In Classes 1-3, we practiced the tools with commercial auditions, but in Class 4, we learn how to apply those tools to legit auditions for TV & Film.
Please bring your own sides.

This commercial class is a must take for actors. The techniques, the tricks, and the knowledge I gained from this class were absolutely invaluable. I now go to commercials so much more prepared. I walk in with confidence because I know what works and what doesn't. Most importantly, I know I gave a GREAT audition because I booked the room.
