    'The Non-olog'

    I found the title of this book misleading in that most of the pieces featured two characters, and so aren't usable monologs. Many of them were also fake television commercials, which weren't really functional in an audition setting. Also, much of the material was really dated humor (situations that aren't current, like 1950's dating.)
