Love At First Listen: Jack Edwards, The Monologue Prince

According to the wonderful academic resource that is not Wikipedia, a monologue is when a character speaks his or her thoughts aloud while addressing the audience.

A common tool used in television, cinema and theatre , this once beautiful and rare piece of dramatic ordnance has found itself lost in today’s mainstream factory belt of entertainment production. This art has been disfigured so violently it has become a pain-staking endeavour to sift through the slurred speech of the raving madmen of this world (see one North African despot after another) to discover the simple, core-shattering elegance of a well vociferated monologue.

………………….[Pause for dramatic effect] [In addition to gazing into the distance while pondering the despair of the reality we face]

Until this day.

Presenting Jack Edwards; anchor, announcer, HERO!

The Daily Segway has fallen head-over-heels in love at first listen.

The man is an audible wordsmith and better yet a drama-king akin to the pomp and blue-blood of the wedding festivities the world witnessed yesterday.

Applaud him, laud him, love him, Jack Edwards should be championed as a defender of what once was the beauty of a simple, core-shattering monologue.

Thank you Jack and God-speed till our next date, know we won’t be late.

    Inspiring words from the always articulate Mr. Edwards. Some of the most inspiring are often his loudest, my favorite of which being: “Save by Thomas!”

    …To speak like a man (or woman) without fear…

    You are so right, the honesty of his words as well as their timely delivery are what make the monologue so sweet on the ear. I propose a toast k, to greater honesty and better monologuing!

    Why do we find these sharpest words appealing?
    Because we can’t get the words out ourselves.

    Honesty, even bad honest, is a rarity nowadays.
