RTE has issued a casting call for 'up for the craic' senior citizens for a new series of Senior Moments.

The hidden camera show made its debut as part of RTE's Christmas schedule last year and has now been recommissioned for a three episode series.

The show, produced by Vico Films (who also produce The Young Offenders), features elderly people taking the Mick out of younger people on the streets of Ireland.  They're also filmed at home telling jokes and anecdotes.

Ideally candidates will be over 65, "up for the craic" and happy to play pranks on unsuspecting members of the public.

It's not for the faint hearted so if your mum or dad, grandmother or grandfather sound like they might fit the bill auditions are taking place in Dublin tomorrow Friday August 18.
