         (Actor runs onstage, very agitated)

All of you out there, the ones who hate ads.....raise your hands if you hate ads....

         (Looks at audience)

That's a lotta you!

          (Raises his hand)

Me, too!  That's why I invented a way to get rid of all commercials!  You heard me!  No more commercials!  No more listening to ads for Viagra and sanitary napkins and foods and cars and memory aids and lawyers and medicines you can't pronounce that will sicken you so you need those lawyers....yes, you heard me right.....NO MORE COMMERCIALS!

And the best part - it's FREE!  You got it - NO CHARGE, NADA....ABSOLUTELY....FREE!

Plus, we take care of the shipping......because there is NO shipping!

We unlock the magic IN YOUR TV to bring you this amazing discovery!

Are you ready?  If you want NO MORE COMMERCIALS RIGHT NOW- please

(very loud)  TURN OFF THE TV!

         (Actor turns to leave, stops to look back, takes a remote out of his pocket and points it at the audience.  He clicks, smiles and exits.....the first  honest commercial!)

Like this monologue?  
I have a collection for seniors available now -dozens of monologues that are proven successes onstage - from Kennedy Center to Burma. Be a winner in your next audition/showcase/class.

Thanks for supporting the theater - and those who write for it!
