“Boy Band” Male Monologue
The Jonas Brothers have nothing on me! I don’t
even think they play their own instruments. I play
electric bass and I’m actually pretty good. I’m
starting my own band. I’m trying out names for us.
I think those guys in the Naked Brothers Band have
a stupid name. I’m thinking of “Fish and Chips” or
“The Deodorants” or “The Paper Cuts!” What do
you think? I’m kinda leaning towards “The
Deodorants” only because some of the guys who
want to be in the band could use some deodorant
if you know what I mean??!! So are you gonna come
and hear us?

“Television Star” female monologue
I could see myself on TV one day. No, really, I
could! Look at this face! This is a TV and movie
type of face! I would want to be on a comedythat’s for sure. I could be Hannah Montana’s
sidekick or I could be a guest star on the Suite
Life of Zack and Cody. That would be very
cool. Or if I was on Zoey 101 I could be the girl
in school who’s always on skates. That would
be awesome—mainly because I love to skate!
So make sure you watch, because you might
see me on TV soon!
