Post Comic Teenage Girl Monologues
This isn't exactly an audition question for a specific play, more of a general question, but I wasn't sure where else to put it.

Soooo, I'm a sixteen-year-old junior in high school. Partially for private acting classes I am going to start and partially also as a way to start preparing for college auditions next year, I am working on building up my monologue repertoire. That's where it gets tricky. Where I can think of many dramatic age appropriate monologues (from The Effects of Gamma Rays in Man-in-the-Moon-Marigolds, The Diary of Anne Frank, etc), I'm having trouble finding some comedy ones for a published play. I'm short, so I can easily play younger, but I'm still really struggling. If you have any words of wisdom for comedic (not overdone, please!) monologues I could look into and even some dramatic ones I might have missed (Shakespeare is good too), then please point me in that direction, and I will be grateful!

Thanks! And remember: FROM PUBLISHED PLAYS. Please none of those monologues from "fake" monologue books (you know the ones I'm talking about) or even movies here. I'm interested in plays only.

I like to blog and vlog:

The Girl in the Goldfish Bowl by Morris Panych has some really good ones. A fourteen year old girl buries a fish stick because her mother flushes her fish down down the toilet. It's hilarious.
