A monologue I originally improvised and recorded for fun. I have transcribed, edited and developed it further to create this piece.

Many super-villains of sci-fi and action films are surrounded by nameless, faceless minions. Here, one of them explains how (s)he got into the evildoer business, and describes a typical day at work.

Mild maturity rating due to mentions of violence.

If you would like to use or perform this monologue in any way, please contact me to discuss my terms.

A DAILY DEVIATION?! I'm not dreaming, am I? This is going to turn out to be some really lovely dream, isn't it? Any minute now, a unicorn is going to gallop into the room, carrying a nice cup of tea and some biscuits.

Thank you so, so much! This is beyond an honour!

UPDATE - 06/05/2013

The response to this piece has inspired me to explore the world of the evil minion further. I am now working on a comedy screenplay series called Evil Minions Union. Keep an eye out for new scenes and episodes!

I saw this pop in my inbox, and the title immediately got me excited. I love these things, and I've read some very good ones, so I came into it with fairly high expectations. I wanted humour, thoughtfulness and a different look into the lives of the mostly ignored minions. I figured I'd get two out of three, at best, but you delivered them all!

As another commenter said, I could really visualize a lot of the imagery you painted. The fact that you managed this through pure dialogue, and still never bogged down the work or stalled the flow is impressive! Good job!

And many congratulations on the DD! It was greatly deserved!

I'd say exceeded is a better word for it!
