Clown Easter – an Easter Sunday skit for 4 clowns

Clown Easter – an Easter Sunday skit for 4 clowns

This script is courtesy of Clowns for Christ

This was originally written for Easter 1998. The script, written for 4 clowns, is intentionally unfinished, because our Associate Pastor supplied the ending to surprise us, taking the role listed below as Non-Clown. Each clown can be played by a pair of clowns sharing the role.

Clown 1 enters whistling. She goes up to a wooden cross and begins trying to balance several eggs on the cross bar. They are real eggs so they will fall off and break, on a tarp placed under the cross. After she places each egg, she hops in place two or three times. Other clowns enter and watch for a moment. Finally, Clown 2 comes up. (more…)

Thou Shalt Not Covenant (clown ministry)

(props required: a Bible, either actual or large foam prop)

(Clown 1 enters carrying Bible — Clown 2 follows directly after him, shadowing him – when Clown 1 stops, Clown 2 stops. When Clown 1 turns, so does Clown 2, staying out of site of Clown 1. This goes on for a minute, milking this gag for all it”s worth. Finally, Clown 1 catches Clown 2 in the act.)

Clown 1: So there you are! What are you doing? (more…)

What is Easter? A free clown skit for three speaking clowns, and one “normal” person

(Editor’s note: this skit is written by Raynbow the Clown, and is based on the joke “Three clowns at the gates of heaven.” Also note that it could be easily re-written for one clown, who is given three tries to get the answer right.)

The skit begins with the “normal” person (probably a children’s pastor) asking for volunteers from the audience to answer a simple question.  The three clowns leap up and clownishly race to the front, eager to answer. (more…)
