From the Author:

These skits were inspired by French sketch comedy, particularly those written by the award-winning Roland Dubillard, whom I had the pleasure to meet.

Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Characters: 1 female, 1 male; or 2 male or 2 female (sketches vary.) Each sketch runs approximately 10 minutes. Minimum costume requirements; few, if any props needed. Bare stage productions possible. Sketches range from the ridiculous to the sublime, from the edgy to the surreal - and sometimes combine all in one sketch! Pick and choose among the 14 wildly surprising sketches. Unpredictable, peculiar and outrageous. This collection is proudly non-family-friendly. A brilliant challenge to gifted actors. Some sketches rely on physical humor more than others. In the Over-Achiever there is a very successful man who is jealous of his ex-wife who has just been made the first female Pope in the Church s history. Mediocrity features a straight-laced female manager who is successful in preventing the bored Brad from quitting his job at the Department of Mediocrity. In Blast Off, Bob is going to have trouble if he goes to Planet Venus because, after all, they have beings of three different sexes there, but none are female. And these are just three of the sketches. Seller Inventory # APC9781470129224
