A FAMED LIFE – TEN MINUTE COMEDY FOR TWO WOMEN

Picture it. You’re famous, super rich, and adored by your fans. Basically, you’re a little spoiled and let’s face it, slightly past your prime. And today, of all days, Yvette, your faithful, um, um… (well, you can’t call them servants nowadays, darling) up and leaves you. And she has the audacity to tell you exactly why in this ten minute comedy for two women.

THE GOLDEN YEARS – COMEDY SCRIPT FOR SENIORS

The ‘Golden Years,’ a short comedy script for seniors, captures a day in the life of the seniors at the local senior centre. From the regular Tuesday game of Euchre (or is it Pinochle?) to the complaints to management about the blocked toilet, the bus that was supposed to take them all to WalMart but hasn’t arrived yet, to the slightly hopeful older gentleman trying to get a date, and failing horribly, this short script, by a mature writer will amuse anyone who has been, is or knows anyone senior.
