Comedic Monologue originally from 20/20 Action
Originally performed by Cassandra Watsham 

Comedic / Female 

The speaker explains how their relationship with their father was strengthened by them going to Comic Conventions together. 


You might not know this about me, but I’m a huge geek. Huge. Like a super big, huge geek.
I used to do math problems for fun. I used to stay up all night and read comics under the
covers until my parents would come in and check on me and I’d have to smother my skinny
body on top of the flashlight so they wouldn’t see the light.

It’s not that I was bullied so much — in that way I guess I was pretty lucky. It was that I was
excluded. I had friends, but no close friends. They were people I went to school with, and got along with, but no one I was tight with.

Maybe that’s why I was so close with my dad. Every year we would go to the Comic Con. He
even let me dress up once we got older. It was amazing. It was magic. Geeks like me
everywhere. It was a place I could be myself. So we went back. Every year. And it became
our time. The time that we got to spend together where it was just us.
