Monologue Description: “YO”  is about name calling.

Character Description: In this monologue, Kirby is having a really bad day and it gets worse when one of his workers calls him “yo” instead of by his real name.

KIRBY: Yo?  What?  Yo?!  Did you just YO me?  You just yo’d me?  Do I look like a YO to you?  I have a name?  What’s my name?  Say my name.  Huh?  That’s right, Kiiiiirby.  That is my name.  KIRBY.  That is what you call me.  You have a problem with my name?  No?  Are you sure?  Are you REALLY sure?  Good, because you’re fired.  Get your shit and get out of my office.

GO!  I am serious.  I’m not playing with you.  Nobody yo’s me.  I’m not some sort of yo yo type of guy okay.  Go back to the ghetto or wherever you’re from and go yo somebody else.

This is corporate America pal, there’s no YO-ing aloud!!

(to himself)


(phone rings)

Hello?  Yo, what’s up?!  How have you been buddy?  Long time, long time.
