1Minute Is The Quickest, Most Effective, and Economical way to Showcase Your Talent!
LA’s 1Minute Monologue Contest was launched in 2006 by Coach Clay Banks to give actors another opportunity to sharpen their skills and to be seen. 1Minute has successfully sold out each and every year since. In 2017 1Minute became an International Micro Film Festival and accepted submissions from all over the world.
1Minute has had some of LA’s most prestigious sponsors: Backstage, Samuel French, Trader Joe’s, Starbucks and so many others. We’ve showcased hundreds of actors, presented just as many monologues and helped open up doors to professional work for both actors as well as writers worldwide!
