Revised Tale of Bethlehem – A very funny retelling of the birth of Jesus, deflating some of the ridiculousness of the Politically Correct movement. This could be used as a clown skit nearly verbatim
And Joseph went up from Galilee to Bethlehem with Mary, his espoused wife, who was great with child. And she brought forth a Son and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger because there was no room for them in the inn.
And the angel of the Lord spoke to the shepherds and said, “I bring you tidings of great joy. Unto you is born a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.”
“There’s a problem with the angel,” said a Pharisee, who happened to be strolling by.
As he explained to Joseph, angels are widely regarded as religious symbols, and the stable was on public property, where such symbols were not allowed to land, or even hover. “And I have to tell you, this whole thing looks to me very much like a Nativity scene,” he said sadly. “That’s a no-no, too.” (more…)

Hold Your Tongue – a skit for 2 speaking clowns, illustrating the meaning of “He who holds his tongue is wise.” (Proverbs 10:19) Original by Raynbow the Clown.

Clown 2: (walking on stage, holding his tongue) Whay! Hea hi ham! (trying to say “wait! here I am!” while holding his tongue – assume that Clown 2 speaks “muddled” every time he speaks, while holding his tongue) (more…)
A Clown Christmas
This script is courtesy of Clowns for Christ
Narrator: Once upon a time, there was a very special group of clowns. (Clowns enter) You can see that their name tags say, “Clowns for Christ.” These clowns loved God very much. God had told them that he was going to send His very own son to the Earth to be King. Well, the clowns couldn’t wait, because this King would be called by many names: (each clown steps forward as he or she says the line, and then back) (more…)
