"I'm only speaking professionally when I say this, but I would hang your picture in my bathroom and look at it every day."
 
"I should be honored that you would even spend time with someone as grotesque as I am."
 
"You're ridiculous and stupid and perfect!"
 
"Silly as it may sound, I try to capture your smell in my nostrils... gosh, I love your smell."
 
 
I DON'T MIND THAT YOU'RE UGLY by Bobby Keniston
 
Who doesn't love a good romantic comedy? As a writer, the challenge I have always faced is balancing the comedy and romance: you need to have hearty laughs and plenty of heart.
 
“I Don't Mind That You're Ugly,” fits the bill. I receive more glowing emails about this play than any other I've written. I think the reason audiences enjoy the show is that the two lead characters--- Clyde and Kira—- are very easy to relate to. Clyde's insecurities, and Kira's awful slip of the tongue, feel honest and genuine to people. And you can't have comedy without honesty.
 
I think audiences also recognize, perhaps subconsciously, that I fell in love with this script while I was writing it. It is close to my heart, and I am honored and thrilled that audiences have fallen in love (and laughter) with it, too!
