(This is the exact same script as the dramatic monologue I posted. You can try to make the dramatic monologue into a comedic one as a great acting exercise)
"Can You Imagine?"
It wasn't realistic, you know? I mean, you know, thinking that the love of my life was going to marry me. It was a joke. I mean, imagine me thinking that! (he starts to laugh). But, why wouldn't I think that? She gave me every indication that she loved me. Yeah, some people just love to trifle with other people's heart. If she was standing here, right now, guess what I would say to her? (a beat to think it over, has an angry look on his face. Then all of a sudden, starts to plead and beg) Why did you do this to me? I thought you loved me...I thought marriage was the next step in this relationship...I love you, Jenny. Can't you see that? I would do anything...(realizes he has become a blithering idiot, and abruptly stops). Oh, did that come out of me? Hey, I kinda lost it for a moment (tries to laugh, but it comes out stilted). Hey...I just have to let this situation just roll off my back (tries to laugh again but starts to cry instead). No, no, I'm not crying. I just have a little something in my eye (fakes trying to get something out of his eye). See...I got it. It's out. Now, what was I saying? Oh yeah, I was telling you about my artificial fiancé. Yeah, artificial! That's exactly what she is...(quietly) artificial...(a beat, then sadly) But, I love the artificial ground she walks on! (pulls himself together) Oh man, did I say that? (looks around the room) Is somebody else in this room? (looks around again). I guess it was me. Nobody here but me...(starts to cry loudly). I'm alone...it's only me! I thought you loved me, I thought that, I thought....she broke up with me just because I asked her to marry me... (pulls himself together again). Hey, wait a minute. I didn't want to get married! Was I crazy?!
