Here are some examples of short comedic monologues for men you can use to practice.

Comedic Monologue for Men 1: The Big Lebowski

Monologue Length: 1 minutes

Walter: Donny was a good bowler, and a good man – he was…he was one of us. He was a man who loved the outdoors, and bowling, and as a surfer he explored the beaches of southern California from La Jolla to Leo Carillo, and up to Pismo. He died.. he died as so many young men of his generation before his time, and in your wisdom, Lord, you took him. Just as you took so many bright, flowering young men at Khe San, and Lan Doc, and Hill 364.

These young men gave their lives, and so did Donny. Donny who loved bowling. And so, Theodore Donald Karabotsos.. in accordance with what we think your dying wishes might well have been….we commit your final mortal remains to the bosom of the Pacific Ocean, which you loved so well. Goodnight, sweet prince. (Walter dumps the ashes out of the coffee can. The wind blows them all onto The Dude.)

Comedic Monologue for Men 2: Peter Pan

Monologue Length:  1 minute

Captain Black Stache: “Perchance you think a treasure trunk sans treasure has put my piratical BVDs in a twist? How wrong you are. Yes, I’d hoped to be hip-deep in diamonds, but they’re a poor substitute for what I really crave: a bona fide hero to help me feel whole. For without a hero, what am I? Half a villain; a pirate in part; ruthless, but toothless. And then I saw you, and I thought, “Maybe? Can it be? Is he the one I’ve waited for? Would he, for example, give up something precious for the sake of the daughter he loves?” But alas, he gives up sand. Now, let’s see: hero with treasure, very good. Hero with no treasure…. doable. No hero and a trunk full o’ sand? Not s’much. Now, where’s my treasure?!?”

Comedic Monologue for Men 3: The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!

Monologue Length:  1 minute

Frank: Jane, it’s me, Funny-face. You love Frank Drebin. And Frank Drebin loves you. Jane, listen to me, if you don’t love me, you might as well pull that trigger, because without you, I wouldn’t want to live anyway.

I’ve finally found someone I can love – a good, clean love… without utensils. It’s a topsy-turvy world, Jane, and maybe the problems of two people don’t amount to a hill of beans, but this is our hill and these are our beans. Since I met you, I’ve noticed things I never knew were there – birds singing, dew glistening on a newly-formed leaf, stop lights. Jane, this morning, I bought something for you. It’s not very much, but pretty good for an honest policeman’s salary. It’s an engagement ring. I’d have given it to you earlier, but I wanted to wait until we were alone. I love you, Jane.
