PEANUT BUTTER FLAVORED TOOTHPASTE
D. M. Larson
Short comedy scene for 2 actors
(Fart sound in darkness)
DIGBY: Did you hear that? It sounded like a fart when I squeezed the tube
It’s coming out all brown and squishy - ew! Anyone else grossed out by this?
(Lights comes up on DEBBY. DEBBY is facing the audience)
DEBBY: It’s such an honor to be auditioning for you. I love all your commercials, like the one about Frank’s Flavored Dentures. Hilarious! I need a moment to warm up before we get started. Mi, mi, mi. La, la, la. Okay, I’m ready as a bowl of spaghetti. Here is my audition: “Peace’s peanut butter flavored toothpaste. Brush with our better peanut buttery paste.” And here is version 2. I thought I’d rewrite it a bit. I hope you don’t mind. “Peace’s peanut buttery paste is something you should taste. Brush better with Peace’s peanut buttery toothpaste.” How’s that? Was that good? You like it? Did I get the part? Please… I need this job. My rent is overdue and I need this so badly.
(DIGBY enters and shows her off)
DIGBY: Time’s up. Let’s go.
DEBBY: Or I could be one of your writers… did you like my version better?
DIGBY: Come on.
(Lights fade to black as DIGBY struggles with DEBBY)
