Abstract: "Love & Taxes" is a comic monologue about one man's belated struggles to become a provider. After years of not filing his tax returns, Josh falls in love with a beautiful woman -- a public schoolteacher -- who, upon getting pregnant, insists that Josh solve his tax problems before their baby is born. As he scrambles to comply, Josh finds his tax hole just getting deeper and deeper -- until, desperate to enter "the System," he finally resorts to extreme measures, such as pleading his case directly to the former commissioner of the I.R.S. Ultimately, and unexpectedly, "Love & Taxes" becomes a story of a lifelong outsider beginning to understand the requirements and rewards of citizenship.
Josh Kornbluth is a comic monologuist based in the San Francisco Bay Area who has toured internationally. He has written and starred in several monologues and feature films, including Haiku Tunnel, Love & Taxes, and Red Diaper Baby, and The Mathematics of Change.
