Naked Live and Never Again: My Last Discourse on Dramatic Method
Witty monologue about an acting guru
This article is from 2010.
Andrew Hawkins (son of veteran British actor Jack, star of Zulu and Ben Hur) gives a terrific performance in this witty monologue. Hawkins plays an acting guru named Jack Treadwell who, having had enough of coaching celebrities and politicians, is bowing out of the business. The unappreciative audience was, unfortunately, clearly primed for funny ha-ha stand-up. Go expecting postmodern playfulness, however, and you’ll be laughing.
