A monologue is an extended statement by a speaker, either in the form of speech or as text. The monologue may be a story, or a speech regarding a subject or theme. Monologues are common theatrical and comedic devices used as story lines, or in some cases purely as entertainment in their own right. Monologues are considered effective in these roles because they concentrate the audience's attention on the subject.
