Hopefuls must perform a one-minute comedy monologue and one pop, rock or comedy song. A headshot and resume are also required.

The stage show by Toronto-based Brett McCaig is described as "an unabashed, take-no-prisoners comedy" about Ford's personal and political journey.

It's set to open at Toronto's Historic Factory Theatre on Sept. 16.
