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…
