Why include a Bible verse?




Why include a Bible verse? This was prompted by a question on the Clown Forum website (a very nice resource, by the way), where someone asked me why Christian clown skits typically end with a Bible verse, sometimes stepping out of character to deliver it — here’s my response: (more…)

The DaVinci Conspiracy

The DaVinci Conspiracy – a skit for 2 speaking clowns, poking holes in Dan Brown’s DaVinci Code, original by Raynbow the Clown

A skit for 2 speaking clowns, typically a white face and an auguste, although any 2 clowns would do.
Clown Props: A large (or foam) Bible, a slapstick (or foam bat, or even a cotton sock with white powder inside if nothing else is available), trench coat, magnifying glass (clown size), paperback book

Whiteface (walks to center stage, addresses audience): Ladies and gentlemen, welcome.  My partner and I are here to address the movie and book “The DaVinci Code” by Dan Brown.  Although a work of fiction, it might influence the ignorant or weak-minded (at this, his partner walks out in a trench coat, holding a magnifying glass and paperback book).

Auguste: You called? (more…)

Shark Repellent

Shark Repellent – free skit for 2 talking clowns

[Editor’s note: ever notice how we tend to get caught in certain habits, that we keep doing over and over, even when the reason for doing it’s long gone … or never existed in the first place?]

Props needed: A water spray bottle, optionally with a paper label on it that says “Shark Repellent”
Bible verse: Matthew 9:17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

Clown 1: (walks on stage with “shark repellent” bottle, begins spraying with abandon) Can’t be too careful! (more…)

Honest Ananias

Honest Ananias skit by Roly Bain

Unlike most of the skits here, I cannot freely give this away to perform — it’s an original skit by Roly Bain, a very talented clown minister. The good news is, you can get a license to perform it (and many other skits) if you own/purchase a copy of the Clown Ministry Handbook.

Having said that, here’s a little of what it looks like: (more…)

Jesus Loves Me

Jesus Loves Me – clown skit written by John Gravley

MAIN IDEA: to show that Jesus loves us and cares for us especially when we feel rejected by others.

HELPERS: at least one clown (who wears a sign that says “Jesus around his/her neck) and eight other helpers who can be clowns but do not have to be clowns.

SETTING: any stage area will work.

PROPS: a sign for Jesus to wear, a large report card showing bad grades, a basketball, a phone, book, rice bowl and chopsticks, some clothes in a laundry bag, a sign that says, “Boss” and some red hearts cut out of paper.

SKIT: as the skit begins, the helpers take their places on the stage. One person is holding the big report card, three people are holding a basketball, two people are pretending to be mother and daughter and two people are pretending to be a boss and worker. All these people move onto the stage and freeze as Jesus enters and walks among them. (more…)
