Christopher goes through a breakup – funny one act comedy script

funny one act comedy script


Christopher is devotedly and passionately in love with Quinn, his girlfriend. She is a very goddess and he worships the ground she walks on. So when his room mate Lazlo brings him a simple note stuck under the door saying that she’s dumping him for her Icelandic swimming instructor, Christopher falls apart in this funny one act comedy script. Lazlo, ever the metrosexual modern male tries to feed him comfort food (quinoa, kale, carrots) but unsurprisingly these things just don’t work.

Determined to get her back, Christopher follows Lazlo to a party where Quinn’s sister will be, planning to crash the party and talk Quinn’s sister into persuading her sister to give him one more chance. Unfortunately it’s a dark and stormy night and the two guys find themselves not at ‘O’Leary’s’ pub, but at  a much dodgier ‘O’Leery’s’ pub. With a severe weather warning, the two are forced to spend the evening at the wrong pub with some quite unusual characters including a slightly alcoholic Irish priest and two grumpy old men.

But when an extremely attractive woman enters the bar and it turns out that she’s just dumped her boyfriend, things start to take an abrupt turn…

A Country Reunion – Comedy about Christmas

Christmas comedy script


In this comedy about Christmas and family, Ma and Pa Hawkins, their children; Millie Ann, Billie Jean, Homer and Zeke, the nosy neighbour Miss Abby, Isaac (Billie’s husband), Amos (a cousin or somethin’ like that) and his fiancée Clyde (she ain’t
no man, honey) cousin Virgil, unc’ Jeb, cousin Zelda, aunt Allie, all gather for a true honky tonk, deep fried, southern belles and cowboys, Crooked Creek country Christmas.

It’s a family reunion to rival most when the Highlanders (Martin and Martha) enter the Hawkins’ household, with a detective no less, hell-bent on implicating the Hawkins’ in the crime of stolen Christmas trees, not to mention their prize hog.

But it ain’t just the trees that the Highlanders want… and it ain’t just the trees that the Hawkins might be hidin’. This
holiday, the Spirit of Christmas (and a leetle Moonshine) is workin’ overtime ya’ll!

There ain’t nothin’ like a (crooked) family Christmas!
