Women’s Comedic Monologues
That Are Actually Funny
by Alisha Gaddis
As humorist and writer Alisha Gaddis explains it, this is how the process goes. “You have an audition. One where you are supposed to be funny. Really funny. They want you to actually make them laugh…in an audition. And you want to be funny, so funny you book the job, land the part, steal the show!”
But, you can’t do that without a comedic monologue, and that’s where this book steps in. Never before has a monologue book been written completely by people who are actually funny for a living.
In Women’s Comedic Monologues That Are Actually Funny (September 2014, Applause Books, $14.99), Gaddis has gathered an incredibly hysterical, cutting-edge collection of monologues will give an actress the extra bang she needs to land the perfect comedic role. Women’s Comedic Monologues features 60 monologues by writers and comics who have written for or performed on Chelsea Lately, Carson Daly, The Tonight Show, Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central Stage, and many more.
This book is the answer to the comedic monologue needs of female actors everywhere!
