Howdy and welcome back to Monologue Mondays!
Fortunately, there are strong, funny monologues written by funny folks like Jenny Yang.
The monologue is about how she was offered “Asian goggles” at a ski resort by someone named Skyler.
Judging from the racism, ski resortiness and name, my money’s on Park City, Utah as the location of said monologue. Park City is as racist a town as any I’ve seen.
Speaking of Wobblies, Jenny Yang’s career has gone from badass labor organizer to badass comedian. Highlights include: making videos for Cracked and performing at Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. Her commentary has been covered by the BBC, New York Times and a bunch of other places. She also wrote for Last Man Standing, but since that was a vehicle for human turd-goblin Tim Allen, I wouldn’t call it a highlight.
Now, let’s check out some videos of this monologue, including by the writer herself!
Thank you so much for reading this blog and thanks to Ms. Yang for writing such amazing material.
