Baptism and the Diploma – a clown skit for 2 talking clowns, typically a white face and an auguste, although any 2 clowns would do, dealing with baptism

Clown 1: Wow, what’s up?
Clown 2: I got it! I got it! I’m so excited!
Clown 1: (mildly puzzled) Got what?
Clown 2: (showing diploma to the audience) A diploma! This shows that I graduated from Seminary, and now I can be the pastor of the WHOLE church! (more…)

The skit starts with one clown coming on stage, complaining to the audience that everyone else is blessed by God, but not him.As he whines, different people come by and bless him with different things that he’s complaining about—for example, he’s cold, and someone brings him a blanket, he’s hungry and someone brings him a sandwich, his leg hurts and he’s given a chair/stool, etc.—and at the end, he turns to the audience and still complains, “Why doesn’t God ever bless me?”

Duct Tape Sanctification is a gospel ministry skit for 2 speaking clowns, typically a white face and an auguste, dealing with the spirit of complaining — and how it’s expressed
Props required: already on stage, a table and a few chairs, possibly with some plastic plates on the table, fruit, etc. The only other prop is the “duct tape” that one clown uses to cover his mouth. Since you don’t actually want to put duct tape over your mouth, simply make one beforehand, with two strips of duct tape put together with the sticky sides touching. The “silent” clown can simply bite onto it, or if you feel ambitious, put a mouth hold on it.
The skit begins with 1 clown already on stage: (more…)

Magic Coloring Book – a simple clown routine
This is a short clown routine using the Magic Coloring Book, also known in magical circles as the Svengali book. In a nutshell, when turning the pages of the book, the book appears to be blank. Turning the pages in a different way, it appears that the pages are now filled with coloring book images. Turning them a third way, the colors are now filled in. Here’s one way you could use this in a clown routine. (more…)
