* Previous related experience or audition with Studio Manager Emely Larson is required for casting.


Live in your living room, it’s your favorite TV show: “American
Profiles!" In a series of hilarious and heart-warming sketches, host Yul
Tide and co-host Chrystal Flakes explore what Santa Claus really
represents, introducing us to various people who know and love him.  The
show is full of bloopers and comic bickering as the TV crew clamors to
find old St. Nick, but Santa’s not the only thing that’s missing. They
can’t seem to find their Christmas spirit, either. Along the way, we
meet the mail carrier for the North Pole, Santa’s staff of elves as they
run through their final check-list, mall santas, moms and dads, and
even a shadowy figure with big ears who’s not so keen on the great
gift-giver (think other furry holiday figures).
