Women’s Comedic Monologues – Introducing Carla Cackowski

Another video of another funny lady! Here is Carla Cackowski, whose monologue “Manic Pixie Dream Girl” can be found in Women’s Comedic Monologues (available now!).

Carla also answered some questions about the book, and why she thinks it will be such an important resource for actresses and comedians:

Q:What makes something funny? 

A: Patterns, particulars, and pratfalls.  And alliteration.

Q: Write a bit about why you think actors NEED this book.

A: Every actor needs this because “funny” monologue books featuring the likes of O’Neill, Strindberg, and Shaw does not a balanced bookshelf make.
