As most of you know by now, I am a stand-up comedian when I am not a mild mannered contract coordinator. I made the decision not too long ago that it is time for me to start trying to move forward in this career (TRYING being the operative word there). Thus I have begun the tedious work of trying to find a talent agency that does not make my skin crawl.
While doing some of this research I came across OneSourceTalent. On there website there is a module on the frontpage for “featured talent.” In this module they show you a pic of the talent as well as their name and vital stats. The featured talent the day that I visited the site was a cute little girl named Liana. Her pic was innocent enough, but let’s just say her stats disturbed me a little.
The first thing that jumped out at me were the waist, hips, and chest measurements. Umm hello? She’s friggin’ seven years old! Is that really appropriate? The other things on the list are pretty benign for the most part, although the fact that the talent is listed as a number instead of just saying what it is seems kinda shady when paired with the rest. At this point I don’t even wanna know what her talent is. The shoe size is also a tad bit questionable.
I was kind of surprised that there was no listing for weight. I guess these are the type of people who are so into kids that they can probably calculate that based on waist and chest size. CREEPY!!!
