Mr. Carl Newton,
Hiring Manager
Stand-up Comedy Acts
213 Mellon Street
Any Town, USA 99999

Dear Mr. Newton:

I saw your listing on JobBankUSA.com for a part-time comedian to fill out your summer program starting May 15. I've been doing comedy for about six years at local hot spots, in bars and clubs around town. I've also appeared on a couple of local TV shows. All details regarding this employment and references to contact if you're interested, are listed on the attached resume.

I'd be happy to stop by your office next week at a time that works for you so we can talk over what you expect from the comedians you hire and to find out more about the schedule, the audience, location of the gigs, etc.

You can reach me at 234-567-9898 to set up a meeting. Thank you for considering my cover letter and application and I hope to hear from you soon. I appreciate your time.
