Tryouts At Branson Landing On Sat., June 16
BRANSON, MO. – People and their pets can showcase their unusual talents and downright “stupid tricks” at the casting call for a guest appearance on the world-famous “Stupid Human and Stupid Pet Tricks” segment of the LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN. Last year, Branson's own Matt Gumm was featured on the LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN. Matt's now famous rendition of “Musical Air with a Bicycle Pump” made it onto the stage with David Letterman and he played along with Paul Schaffer and the “The World’s Most Dangerous Band” later in the show! Your opportunity to try out will take place on Sat., June 16, from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.at Branson Landing, located in historic downtown Branson on Lake Taneycomo.
The local communities, and visitors alike, are invited to audition for an opportunity to be selected to display their trick/talent on an upcoming LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN. “I am so grateful to the Branson Chamber/CVB for having David Letterman's crew out to Branson year after year for these auditions,” said Matt Gumm, featured comedian and vocalist in Clay Cooper's Country Music Express show. “I would encourage everyone to come out and audition at Branson Landing. You never know! There is so much talent in Branson and I thoroughly enjoyed being able to represent our town in New York City!”
The selected contestants will be awarded a FREE, all-expense-paid trip to New York City, payment for their appearance on the show and the once-in-a-lifetime chance to perform their act on the famed Ed Sullivan Theater stage before millions of television viewers. This is the fifth year for Letterman tryouts in Branson.
Interested entrants must arrive at the casting call area (located in front of the Branson Landing Fountains) between 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on Sat., June 16.

The last audition will take place promptly at 7:00 p.m. In addition, participants that are auditioning for the “Stupid Pet Tricks” casting call must provide water for their pet and the pet must be under the owner’s control (i.e., leash, crate, etc.) at all times prior to and after the casting call.
