Monologue Name: The Man In All Black
Writer: Ken Thompson
Character Name: Johnny
I saw him standing there, on the other side of the road…The man in all black. I mean, he was just standing there! It was super weird, so I decided to watch for awhile. Then he got on his phone! I mean can you believe that?
Weeeeeiirrrrdddd…right?! He’s just standing there. On the street. And I mean there’s this bright red fire hydrant next to him. Like Boom-Bam!! It made the man in all black stand out even more! So I get my phone out to take a picture of him, but he sees me. I literally jumped in a bush next to me…Yea that doesn’t work like it does on TV. I was stuck!!! I mean, can you believe that? Stuck! In a bush!
Then the man in black started walking toward me. I stood really still to pretend that I was part of the bush, but he kept walking! He came right up to me and ya know what he said?! Come on, take a guess!…Alright he said “Til things are brighter, I’m the man in black.” Then he just walked away! Can you believe that?! He just said that!! Then walked away!!…And uh, could I get a band-aid? That bush really messed me up.
