One Minute Monologues

Last sunday I checked out the last performance of Five Dollar Comedy Week here in Philly at the Plays and Players Theatre. There were 60 performers each doing a 1 minute monologue. I secured a place in the back of the theatre, which probably wasn't the best idea in hindsight. The seats around me quickly filled and soon I was trapped. That seat will have to do! It was a tight squeeze to get my drawing supplies out.

There was a bright screen on stage that said each performers name. The screen was blinding to me, but only because I kept looking down at my sketchbook to draw. It was hard to transition from looking at the bright light to looking at a dark page, but I really liked the touch of having each performers name displayed on stage!

The acts were really funny, I had a great night of laughing and drawing. Below are my sketches of every single performer...except 1 that was only over the loudspeaker, and another being the 2nd mime.) Yes there were 2 mimes. I wish I had a picture.

I hope all the performers can see their image... and let me apologize in advance. Remember - sitting in back, bright lights, 60 seconds to draw AND write a line from the set. I consider only some a success but the sheer number of them is something pretty cool in my opinion.

I am still saying: "IM MOUSTACHE TOMMY!" much to my boyfriend's delight...
