Want to be a singer, a model, or maybe a comedian or TV Host? Then Big Shot Live is your chance to do just that. Simply go to the site, submit your video, and see if you're one of the lucky winners to get flown to LA (given that you're not already here) to pursue your goal and have it documented on the web. But unlike most talent contests, you get flown out right away, so there's no wait to start making your dreams come true.

We caught up with one of the managers who host Big Shot Live, Todd Glass, who himself is a comedian who's been featured on Comedy Central Presents, Last Comic Standing, and performs all over the country and LA. Todd explained how the show works, shared some anecdotes of his own, and talked about two pilots he's working on, Todd Glass Saves America and Dr. Todd.

One of the stipulations of Big Shot Live is that you cannot be a convicted felon.
I think that's going to eliminate a lot of good people, unfortunately (laughs). It's for safety reasons. If I have to spend four days with the contestants, I'd prefer it if they not be murderers.
