Making room for my stuff – A clown ministry skit for 2 speaking clowns
Props required: a large foam Bible that is hollowed out, as well as things to pull out of it (colored silks, for example) and things to put in (could be anything appropriate to your clown – balloon animals, juggling balls, magic props, etc.)
Clown 1 walks onto the stage, carrying the foam Bible; he addresses the audience.
Clown 1: Did you ever notice that there’s lots of good stuff in the Bible? But there’s also some stuff that just doesn’t make me comfortable. (more…)
A new creature in Christ – a clown ministry skit for 2 speaking clowns
Props: a large cardboard box (think refrigerator box), or something equivalent. Assuming that you have (or acquired) a refrigerator box, cut out a large window in the top, so the audience can see the clown once he enters. You could also have a flashlight hidden on the bottom of the box, so the clown can stoop down and flash the light as the device is working. You also want to draw with a marker some settings, such as “Clown,” “Chicken,” and “Christian”. Also a Bible, either real or clown prop.
At the beginning of the skit, Clown 1 pushes the box (think “transmogrifier” from the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip) on stage.
Clown 1: There! That’s done! Now, I need to find a victim … I mean, volunteer! (more…)

The Spirit is Willing – a skit for two clowns, teaching about temptation and being prepared — also about self-righteousness — original by Raynbow D. Clown
Clown 1, Clown 2 walk on stage, possibly holding a sign with the verse (Mark 14:38 ~ “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.”)
Clown 1: Today, we’re here to teach about temptation
Clown 2: [sanctimoniously] Yes, for all you weak people out there! (more…)
Praying Clowns, a clown skit for 2 speaking clowns, courtesy of Clowns for Christ
Clown One is introduced by Pastor and comes and sits by him to talk to kids about prayer. Clown Two sneaks in. Kids see Clown Two, but Clown One pretends not to.
Clown One: I am going to talk to you guys about prayer. We have the Lord’s Prayer that we all know, but I pray differently when I’m by myself. I usually start out by saying, “Hello, Heavenly Father!”
Clown Two: Hello. (more…)

More than Hear – a clown skit for 3 or more clowns, written by John Gravley
MAIN IDEA: to show that Jesus does not just tell us about God’s love but joins our lives to live God’s love through us. We don’t just listen to Jesus we have to invite Jesus to live with us.
HELPERS: at least three but more can join.
SETTING: two areas are needed. One area is a worship area and the other area is a living area.
PROPS: a sign for Jesus to wear, a Bible or big book that can be a Bible, some snacks, some books to study and some other activity for clowns to share (maybe a deck of cards to play)
SKIT: two (or more clowns) are studying together and eventually they get into a fight and somebody gets mad.
After a pause they get up one by one and move over to the worship area where Jesus is standing motioning as if teaching. Gradually the clowns that have been fighting are no longer angry with each other. (more…)
The Armor All of God – a talking clown skit dealing with the armor of God
(originally posted to the Clown Ministry group at http://groups.yahoo.com)
(Clown enters with a suitcase. Sets the case down and opens it.)
C: Hello everyone! I was asked if I would come in and tell everyone about the Armor …. All of God. I’m was a little confused at first until I was at Wally World in the motor car section and there it was, the Armor …. All of God! I jumped and shouted until everyone started looking at me funny. I just kept telling everyone, “I found it! I found it! The Armor …. All of God!”
Would everyone like to see it? First I’m going to need a volunteer. (more…)
