ABOUT.

Each spring, as sports fans from across the nation flock to college basketball arenas, crazed actors, theatre, and film fans from up and down the East Coast converge upon our nation’s capital to witness the phenomenon known as Monologue Madness.   

Created in 2011 by actor and producer Edward Daniels, this annual acting competition has kept sold-out audiences on the edge of their seats and awarded over $15,000 to deserving acting talent.

 

On Selection Day, over 200 actors audition at our open call. Only 32 make the cut into a single-elimination tournament bracket.

 

Two weeks later, on Championship Night, each actor arrives prepared with three of their best one-minute monologues to perform before a live audience and a panel of judges.

 

Through the rounds of Comedy, Drama, and Classical, taking the stage in pairs and scored individually by theatre, film, and casting professionals, one actor advances to the next round, while the other is eliminated.

 

For those actors breaking into the Final Four, the Cold Read Round, the evening becomes a bit more interesting. Actors are handed an unseen monologue and given just five minutes to prepare before taking to the stage.

 

As only two actors remain in the Final Round our judges hand down a final adjustment leading up to the crowning of our champion, who walks away with $1000.

 

Monologue Madness 2022, proudly celebrates our 10th anniversary and continues our national tour with competitions in Washington, DC, Atlanta, GA, NYC, and Los Angeles, California.
