Monologue

A monologue is a speech by one person directly addressing an audience. An opening monologue is often a segment of stand up comedy, such as at the beginning of The Tonight Show. In the context of a stage play it might be an aside by one actor or simply their character "thinking out loud". One famous example is the "To be, or not to be" monologue in Hamlet.
