Candidates will attend a formal interview with the Chiefs staff and will be expected to audition.

The Chiefs are looking for individuals with outgoing personalities who like to have fun and perform in front of large crowds. Previous experience is not required but will be taken into consideration. Interested candidates should be ready to work 70 home games between April 8 and August 30.
Those auditioning for Homer should be prepared to perform their own skit or dance in addition to ones provided by the Chiefs.
