Monologue Death Match?

There's a new game in town, and it sounds amusing. The Actors Cafe is hosting an "Actors' Showcase" on Thursdays at 8 p.m.

Host and talent agent Jeffrey Nightbyrd (Acclaim Talent) is billing it as half "Gong Show," half monologue contest. The idea is that actors get on stage, perform their favorite excerpt for five minutes and see if the crowd digs.

No dig? Gong.

There will be eight contests, and the best from each will advance towards the finals.

I'll be a fly on the wall tonight. All flyswatters will be confiscated at the door.

WHAT: Actors' Showcase.
WHEN: 8 p.m. Thursdays.
WHERE: 1401 Fairfield Ave. (formerly Bear's Cafe), Shreveport. Questions? (318) 367-0008.

Dang, you work fast. I'm going to sneak in my fly-swatter in a way too large purse.

Also, I fully expect you to give the "I coulda been a contender" speech. I'll cheer for you, Alex.

Not happening. I'm a legend in my own mind and quite comfortable there.

This is so Hollywood. Things like this were happening all over that city when I lived there... gulp, um, twenty years ago...

It did feel very Hollywood. Pretty fun event, I think, for the talent. Crowd is pretty encouraging.
