Abstract:

"Finally, a monologue book for actors with a malicious sense of humor - and a ruthless sense of joie de vivre! This galling collection contains scenes drawn from the masters of French humor Georges Feydeau, Fernard Raynaud, et al., written directly for the popular French farce theatre world, as well as from works intended primarily for the printed page: brief journalistic vignettes of Alphonse Allais, the fictions of Apollinaire, and others.

But whether for the actor looking for the je ne sais quoi selection for an upcoming audition or for the reader looking in vain through the "humor" section of the local bookstore, this collection will provide classic French wit and wickedness."--Jacket.
