Clown Ministry Skits
Clown ministry skits – free to use in church, gospel outreach, or wherever clowns want to show the love of Jesus Christ
How Do You Spell Christmas? – a clown Christmas skit for 1 or more clowns, performed to the song “C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S”
(Editor’s note: the idea for this Christmas skit came from a photograph in the highly-recommended book If I Were A Clown).
As the following song is played or performed (either by clowns or a chorus), 1 or more clowns create a pile of boxes, with a letter in large print on the front of each box. Optionally, an item can be put into each box representing that letter’s item (a baby doll wrapped in cloth for the “C” – Christ Child, etc.) — the stack of boxes spells “Christmas”, as you can see in the following song: (scroll down past the song — there’s more 🙂 (more…)
Are You Done Yet? A free Christian clown skit for two clowns, demonstrating patience as one of the fruits of the Spirit. Original by Raynbow the Clown, inspired by a one-clown skit from Clown Skits for Everyone
Props: A drawing pad (or as fancy as you’d like; feel free to use an artists’ tripod, etc.)–with Galatians 5:22 printed on it

Birthday Party Invitation – a free funny Christian clown skit for 2 or more speaking clowns, original by Raynbow& Goofy Grape, suitable for a Christmas skit
A free Christmas skit for two clowns — we’ll be using Raynbow (an auguste) and Goofy Grape (another auguste) — any two (or more) would work.
Skit either begins with Goofy Grape at center stage, or she skips merrily to center stage. In either event, she is bursting with excitement (as visually as possible — remember we’re clowns)
Raynbow enters from off-stage.
Raynbow: You sure look excited… (more…)

Thanksgiving Skit, courtesy of Epworth Rehoboth Church Clowning for Joy clown ministry
William Martin, AKA: Specs the Clown
Cast: Narrator, nine or more clowns
November 18, 2012
Narrator: Once upon a time there was a very happy group of clowns. (clowns all greet each other with handshakes and hugs) They lived in a wonderful community called Rehoboth Beach and attended a weekly service at a church called Epworth (clowns kneel in prayer). Each year they would gather together in the fall, once the weather turned chilly, (clowns shiver with cold) for a special dinner (Clowns bring table on stage). They worked very hard preparing food (some clowns hold dishes with silly food item like cotton candy, popcorn…..) and drinks (clowns hold up soda bottles filled with bright green and pink liquid) and others made festive decorations for the dinner (other clowns show silly decorations). (Note: Each Clown can bring a “dish” which the narrator will call out as the clowns show them: Clown Stuffing, Roast Rubber Chicken, Pumpkin Pie with real pumpkin on top……) But, despite all the hard work, they looked forward to this annual dinner as a time of wonderful fun and fellowship. (clowns gather around table, hug, hold hands) (more…)

There’s a hole in my heart – clown skit for 3 speaking clowns
Clowns Liza, Gabby and Polly.
- Hearts: Begin with a large thick piece of durable foam. Cut it in the shape of a heart. Then cut a second heart out of the center so that you have a large heart with an empty center and a smaller heart which fits back in exactly. Using a paint which does not eat foam, paint both hearts bright red. Letter ”JESUS” on the smaller heart.
- Money: Play money – try to get the really big variety.
- Candy: One or more chocolate bars – if possible, get the extra large ones. If you will perform this skit regularly, consider covering cardboard with the wrappers so that you can keep the prop on hand.
- Fun: This could be a bright colored plastic slinky or some other toy.
This skit is based on the folk song, ”There’s A Hole In My Bucket, Dear Liza”. (more…)
