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 Men’s Comedic Monologues That Are Actually Funny (July 2014, Applause Books, $14.99), Gaddis has gathered an incredibly hysterical, cutting-edge collection of monologues that will give an actor the extra bang he needs to land the perfect comedic role. Men’s Comedic Monolgues features more than 70 monologues by writers and comics who have written for or performed on EllenThe Tonight ShowLast Comic Standing, Comedy Central Stage, Funny or Die, the Groundlings, Second City, and many more.

This book is the answer to the comedic monologue needs of male actors everywhere!
