A comedian and writer, Wix has for the past few years been writing audition speeches for students at drama schools including RADA, LAMDA, Drama Centre and The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. A book of contemporary comedy monologues does not exist for today's actor or indeed a book comprising solely of showcase speeches. This is a collection of very funny and original audition speeches filling a significant gap in the market: made up of monologues for various age ranges, each with a running time of two to three minutes. The brevity in length makes these ideal for auditions or showcases and the variety in age and style encompasses different comedic approaches; from the very quirky to the more traditional - perfect for every type of performer.

'I enjoyed Katy Wix's first book of monologues and now she's given us 40 more. She is often very funny - even on the page - and in the hands of a skilled performer some of these new speeches would be pure gold. She's very good at the apparently random deadpan opening: "I was in a band", "I never feel the cold", "I've got to pee". The skill, as ever, is to be deadly, earnestly serious about something laughably, perhaps pitiably, trivial. There's plenty here for anyone wanting a fresh comic audition speech or for anyone brave enough to be assembling one-woman show material.' The Stage
