Say What? One Act Adult Comedy About Dating

SAY WHAT? ONE ACT ADULT COMEDY ABOUT DATING

Emm’s recovering from the shock of kicking her boyfriend out after finding a thong (not hers and no meant for her) in his bag. The evil, evil evil bastard was cheating on her, he’s gone and she has resorted to comfort food to get her through.  Luckily (or for better, or worse) for her she has the two sides of her brain to get her through this breakup in this adult comedy about dating.

Sarah is the logical side. She thinks it’s about time Emm stopped eating all that ice cream (it makes her fart) and get out there and meet a real man. (And if he’s looking to plough her fields, even better!) Bella is the emotional one. In her opinion, the Ex (Evil, Evil, Evil) deserved that microwave that was thrown at his head. Pity it missed.  Together they’re Sarah-Bella-Emm.

And tonight, Emm’s going on a date. And her brain is going to make sure she’s prepared for every (and I mean every) eventuality.

The Warhol Institute for the Forgotten FAMOUS – Comedy about Therapy

comedy about therapy

THE WARHOL INSTITUTE FOR THE FORGOTTEN FAMOUS – COMEDY ABOUT THERAPY

They’re all there and you should know them. Jacqueline, Lenny, Natasha and Marvin. With the pile of problems on the therapist’s lap, you’d think she was dealing with a-list celebrities, you know ‘cause more money more problems but this is a bunch who’s list doesn’t even exist. In, The Warhol Institute for the Forgotten Famous, Jacqueline is the resident troublemaker and is pretty good at her job. She has it in for the therapist and finds an ally in Lenny, the timid baby phoenix no one knows a thing about in this comedy about therapy.

Natasha has yet to come to terms with the fact that she isn’t that great… at anything. It’s a harsh pill to swallow but at least Jacqueline has them all covered in that regard. Then there’s Marvin. Poor guy stands no chance what with him getting aroused from the strangest proclivity and his nemesis, Jacqueline, who never lets him forget how strange he is. You’d think this two-act comedy was about Jacqueline (born Barbara) or the self-discovery and healing of the foursome, at the guidance of the dutiful therapist but it’s not. This is about not acknowledging who you’ve always been and paying the price for it.

THE LADIES GUILD ANNUAL PRE-CHRISTMAS PLANNING SESSION – COMEDY ABOUT WOMEN’S GROUPS

Without each other, they’re just reminded of how lonely they really are. Together, they’re exposed to how annoying they can be. In, The Ladies Guild Annual Pre-Christmas Planning Session, the ladies take pride in meeting up every year, to serve the charities of the world. Making actual money (in the form of donations) is the goal, of course but it’s also a great opportunity to come to terms with their losses. In one act, the dramedy also introduces us to Linda, who is new to the life of a widow but well-versed in the language of sisterhood because that’s what the Ladies Guild… really is in this comedy about women’s groups.

This play points a seasonal finger at the typical busybodies one always finds in places such as church groups, parents associations and other such societies. ‘Tis the season to be jolly! Or at least, to try.

Le Jeu Espion (The Spy Game) WWII Comedy Spoof

WWII COMEDY SPOOF

LE JEU ESPION (THE SPY GAME) WWII COMEDY SPOOF

The time? World War 2. The place? A little not so innocent French cafe. The Genre? A very, very silly WWII Comedy Spoof.

Now, listen carefully – for I shall say this once only. The French resistance have hidden a secret code inside a painting known only as “The Singing Bovine.” A local street artist, Etienne (a.k.a. Caroline) whose mustache is definitely not fake has the painting. All you need to do is to whisper the secret password to Etienne and she (sorry, he) will give the painting to you. The war will be won today!

Now – do not let the painting get into the enemy’s hands! Beware of the Nazi’s, and don’t trust that Italian or his little Russian friend, either. They all want the painting and will do their best to get their hands on it.

Le Jeu Espion plays homage to the great Allo Allo British Television series and its fans will love its similar feel. A great one act festival play.

SOCK HOPS, RECORDERS AND OWL PELLETS: TIPS ON SURVIVING THE 4TH GRADE – CHILDREN’S COMEDY SCRIPT

You know what? Adults are always saying how hard life is with jobs and kids and shopping and cooking and cleaning. But do you know how hard it is to be me? To be a 4th grader? I have tons of responsibilities. I have homework. I have to play the recorder in music class. I have to learn about the body. I have to manage 4 different girlfriends! Wait what day is it today? Tuesday…I have to manage 3 different girlfriends! Oh no…I have a spelling test today.
Poop! Anyway, you get the point. Us 4th graders are much busier than adults!

Tyler is a 4th grader struggling with all your typical 4th grade problems: homework, spelling tests, and of course – girls. From gym class, to music class, and everything in between, Tyler and his friends share their essential tips on surviving 4th grade in this children’s comedy script.

PRODUCTION NOTE: The play has been staged using older teen actors. Part of the charm and humour about the production was that the older actors were playing younger kids. As it is a wordy piece it would also suit teenagers.

FOREIGN THERAPY – TONGUE IN CHEEK POLITICAL COMEDY SCRIPT

Read all about it! Read all about it! A new island has been discovered slap bang in the middle of the sea between the USA and Russia (And let’s not forget Canada, of course) . The leaders of each powerful nation are there, vying for ownership of the island in this tongue in cheek political comedy script.

Now, in every doomed marriage there is a mediator, someone whose job it is to smooth things over, as it were. Russia and America hate one another, so his job isn’t going to be easy. Canada has come to the party too, but that wasn’t the mediator’s idea. And because it wasn’t his idea, it’s clear he isn’t going to let Canada have a say, even though he has loads of good ideas.

Now this poor mediator’s task is to get them to agree on something. As the testosterone levels in the room rise, both Russia and America are finally united in the idea that they will go to war with each other over this tiny patch of land and the mediator is finding it more and more difficult and is considering abandoning the whole thing and going for lunch instead.

Enter North Korea. He’s brought popcorn.

BLIND DATE – THE AFTERMATH – 10 MINUTE COMEDY. WHEN THE DATE’S OVER, IS IT?

Dr Stanley and Alice Adler have been on a blind date with each other and have returned to their respective apartments. Now, it is true that people who have been single for a while tend to have relatively high standards in the people they date. Film star looks and a sparkling personality to match wouldn’t go amiss at all in this 10 minute comedy!

After the initial feeling that perhaps the person they just dated wasn’t really the film star they had hoped for, and having been brought down to a rather ordinary earth with a bump, both Alice and Stanley decide that, actually, a second date wouldn’t be so bad. Pity that Alice ignored the phone when it rang earlier…

RUNNING OF THE AAAH! COMEDY ABOUT HOW TO SABOTAGE THE RUNNING OF THE BALLS

Every year, the famed festival of San Fermín in Pamplona, Spain culminates in the running of the bulls, and every year, hundreds of animal rights activists show up to boycott the event out of protest. Running of the—AAAH!, a new bovine comedy by Mark Aloysius Kenneally, tells a fictional alternate history of the week leading up to the first American version of the event and the catastrophic chaos that ensues when one of the most vocal opponents turns out to actually be one of the bulls slated to run.

It’s a fact that the average human is cleverer than the average bovine; hence the existence of Steak Tartare. But just once in while, a group of exceptional bovines come out of the paddock. And saves the day. The bulls are revolting, the humans are scheming – but who will get the last moo in this comedy about how to sabotage the running of the bulls?

THE IMPOSTOR – TWO-ACT COMEDY ABOUT AN ESTATE AGENT

Family and business usually don’t mix well. That, however, has yet to stop the Norths in this comedy about an estate agent. The Norths run North Real Estate Agency with Roger, the tough patriarch, at its head. Marianne, Roger and Elvira’s daughter, is in love with Val, an employee who seeks the blessing of Roger. Now, Roger’s wife is (at the same time) being pursued by Terry Tupper (another employee) whom Grandma North and Roger seem to live for… and that’s just for starters.

As complicated as things are (and probably always will be) Terry Tupper is the largest problem facing the family and its business. He seems to have some sort of agenda. Everyone BUT Roger and Grandma seem to be onto his shenanigans. Something must be done. And it must be done before Terry starts believing he has become a North.

SHADY LADIES – SITUATIONAL COMEDY SCRIPT

Jim and Jerry are best buddies. Jim’s a once successful Sitcom writer and Jerry, a Los Angeles Special Forces Police Lieutenant assigned to combat the evils of prostitution which causes him to suffer “anxiety attacks” from the stress in this situational comedy script. The cure? Watching a major sports event on TV with his buddy and a six pack.

Unfortunately for the comedy writer, his buddy could not have chosen a worse time to arrive on his doorstep.  The writer is (he hopes) expecting a very attractive young lady he met on a limo coming in from the airport, who is also a writer and hoping to work her way into script writing.  He extended the invitation to her (presumably) to help her “break into the business”.

Luckily she doesn’t arrive until after Jerry leaves and turns out to be a beautiful, but innocent young woman. They get to chatting about life, Jerry and his little “problem”.  The writer admits that he hasn’t worked in some time due to writer’s block as he’s waiting for the inspiration for a new series. The woman suggests to Jim that a sit com based on his friend’s profession busting prostitution rings in L.A., could be hilarious.

The two friends take the idea on board and soon the series is written and they see themselves on the road to riches and fame. Inflated by his success, Jim shares the script with his young protege, as a lesson in professional script writing, only to find that she vanishes, along with his script.

But who exactly was she and have they been duped all along?

GOON TODAY – FUNNY FAIRY TALE SCRIPT

Fu (Spelled F. U. ) was sentenced to life as a goon for slapping a mouse. It’s hardly a fair sentence for slapping one mouse. A Mouse! Really? It’s also not important whether the mouse had it coming or not. (He did) Life as a goon, as a result of this brief “lapse” in judgement, is an absolute nightmare. In this comedy in one act, Fu won’t stop (and hasn’t stopped) complaining until he’s heard in this funny fairy tale script.

Luckily, his whining doesn’t fall on deaf ears this umpteenth time. The Good Fairy will pardon Fu if he asks every single goon living in the forest to leave. The goons will likely do so. It’s a deal so sweet he can hardly believe it as he sets out towards his freedom. Fu will be a bunny again. As for the Good Fairy, he will rest easy because all politicians sleep well at night… Corrupt to the core, the Good Fairy is using the forest goons to his own benefit. This leaves Fu to fight for more than just his own freedom and become the hero he was born to be.

Life as a goon is only the beginning. A fairy tale with adult type humour suitable for older teens. In the style of ”Shrek. ”
