Twinkie's Hollywood Monologue Slam is a competition for actors to showcase their talents in Los Angeles, Ca. Los Angeles is the home of Hollywood.  It's also the home of The Oscars, Emmys, Golden Globes and now Twinkie's Hollywood Monologue Slam.


Based in Hollywood, Twinkie's Hollywood Monologue Slam is the brainchild of Producer & Hollywood Casting Director Tracy Twinkie Byrd. “I love Monologues!" says Twinkie.  "Monologues are the perfect opportunity to take the viewer on an emotional journey with your Art. Monologues are a major part of every Film and/or Television show so I created a competition."  


Twinkie's Hollywood Monologue Slam started 5 years ago at Hollywood Black Film Festival and outgrew it quickly. Our new home, El Portal Theater, is a 265 seat major Theater and we have kicked production up a notch. Twinkie's Hollywood Monologue Slam has attracted talent from around the world ... Vietnam, South Africa and Jamaica to name a few.


Our showcase is judged by notable acting peers such as Aisha Hinds, Michael Ealy, James Pickens Jr., Meagan Good, Omari Hardwick, Jordin Sparks, Naturi Naughton and Directors such as Nzingha Stewart, Bill Duke, Craig Ross just to name a few.


Twinkie's Hollywood Monologue Slam is held annually in October.
