BEST STORY EVER: Phil LaMarr’s Squirm-Inducing TV Audition
submit to reddit

American actor and comedian Phil LaMarr's Best Story Ever had to do with a rather awkward audition for a TV pilot.

He came in to try out for the role of a delivery guy dressed in shorts and high tops.

"In auditions, frequently, there are these moments... where if they don't like what you've done, and really want to go, 'Oh, God,' they can't.

"So the director goes, 'Try it again, but, you know, angrier."

Soon enough, LaMarr figured out what the director really meant.
