Theatrical Monologue

Mmmm... Cocks...Mmmm... Cocks... Registered User regular
edited February 2008 in Help / Advice Forum
I have a basic theater class I'm taking in college just as a gen ed.

And we have to do a monologue, and I honestly don't really know of any. I do remember somebody starting this same thread probably a year ago. Basically, does anybody know of some good theatrical monologues?

We do have a few requirements being that:
-Same sex (male)
-Approx. Age (20)
-and between 2 and a half and three minutes (no more, no less)


EDIT: FUCK I forgot to type that it does need to be theatrical - IE from a play or something of the sort (no TV movies etc.)

Mmmm... Cocks... on

    I used to hate black coffee; but let's face it, black coffee is manly. Do you think Clint Eastwood ever took "two sugars and a cream?" Of course not: Clint Eastwood was a man. And the girls love manliness. Once at a Denny's I encountered a waitress who would change me. Jenny: such a lovely girl. I had to show off my manliness (or at least act the part).

    I ordered a Lumberjack Slam, extra ham, a piece of carrot cake, and of course, the clincher: black coffee. Unimpressed with this manliest of breakfasts -- which would have wowed most waiting-persons, Jenny tried to break me by bringing more and more coffee. Oh, I downed the breakfast before the rest of my family finished their three pancakes, mind you...but that coffee. I couldn't back down now. I'd come too far to chicken out.

    She brought the check and with that topped me off: my eleventh cup. I tried to manage it down, but I was on my last leg long before....light bulb. Once no one was looking, I dumped my coffee in my grandmother's cup. Mock sipped it. Slammed it down and strode to the door--victorious. I take my coffee black for the same reason guys do anything: to impress women.




    Have fun man, theatre classes are great.

    "Nothing spoils the taste of peanut butter like unrequited love."

    Charlie Brown: I think lunchtime is about the worst time of day for me. Always having to sit here alone. Of course, sometimes, mornings aren't so pleasant either. Waking up and wondering if anyone would really miss me if I never got out of bed. Then there's the night, too. Lying there and thinking about all the stupid things I've done during the day. And all those hours in between when I do all those stupid things. Well, lunchtime is among the worst times of the day for me. Well, I guess I'd better see what I've got. Peanut butter. Some psychiatrists say that people who eat peanut butter sandwiches are lonely...I guess they're right. And when you're really lonely, the peanut butter sticks to the roof of your mouth. There's that cute little red-headed girl eating her lunch over there. I wonder what she would do if I went over and asked her if I could sit and have lunch with her?...She'd probably laugh right in my face...it's hard on a face when it gets laughed in. There's an empty place next to her on the bench. There's no reason why I couldn't just go over and sit there. I could do that right now. All I have to do is stand up...I'm standing up!...I'm sitting down. I'm a coward. I'm so much of a coward, she wouldn't even think of looking at me. She hardly ever does look at me. In fact, I can't remember her ever looking at me. Why shouldn't she look at me? Is there any reason in the world why she shouldn't look at me? Is she so great, and I'm so small, that she can't spare one little moment?...SHE'S LOOKING AT ME!! SHE'S LOOKING AT ME!! (he puts his lunchbag over his head.) ...Lunchtime is among the worst times of the day for me. If that little red-headed girl is looking at me with this stupid bag over my head she must think I'm the biggest fool alive. But, if she isn't looking at me, then maybe I could take it off quickly and she'd never notice it. On the other hand...I can't tell if she's looking, until I take it off! Then again, if I never take it off I'll never have to know if she was looking or not. On the other hand...it's very hard to breathe in here. (he removes his sack) Whew! She's not looking at me! I wonder why she never looks at me? Oh well, another lunch hour over with...only 2,863 to go."

    From you're a good man charlie brown

    Argh, as you can see from my edit I forgot that it does have to be "theatrical" so Charlie Brown is out.
    But what is that black coffee monologue from? It interests me... but is sadly only a minute.

    And hell yea the class is fun. Best class I've got this semester, actually, best this year so far.

    "The Watch" from Pulp Fiction should be long enough.

    It's theatrical.

    I think I found a site with a lot of monologues a few months ago. (many of them from movies, but no more than half, I'd say) I'll see if I can find it.

    Edit: Here it is!

    There is a musical called "You're a good man Charlie Brown" which that piece might be from.
