Finding Acting Monologues:

Copyright laws prevent CGCookie from providing monologues for you to download. So you will have to find your own.

Thankfully they're not hard to find. There are thousand of books filled with acting monologues and countless resources on the web. You can find feature film or TV scripts to take your monologues from, but it will be so much easier to find a dedicated “acting monologue” to perform.

It is even possible to write your own ;)
