Time for my Medicine

Time for my Medicine – A skit for two clowns (possibly 3), original by Goofy Grape

Clown 1 walks on stage, with Clown 2 following 1 step behind. As Clown 1 turns, Clown 2 swivels, to remain behind Clown 1 at all times

Clown 1: Now where’s Clown 2? It’s time for her medicine!

Clown 2: (from behind Clown 1) It’s time for my medicine!

Clown 1: (turns around, looking for Clown 2 — Clown 2 moves in order to stay behind Clown 1) Where is she? It’s time for her medicine!

Clown 2: It’s time for my medicine!

Clown 1: (turns the other direction, looking for Clown 2; Clown 2 mimics her movements, staying behind her) Where can she be? (play with the audience here — as they tell her ‘behind you’, she turns around, but Clown 2 stays behind her the entire time) I’m getting confused! It’s time for whose medicine?

Clown 2: It’s time for my medicine!

Clown 1: (looking puzzled) It’s time for my medicine?

Clown 2: It’s time for my medicine!

Clown 1: It’s time for my medicine? (looks at the medicine, then at the audience — asks the audience) Should I take this medicine?

(audience yells “no!” If they don’t, just act as though they did)

Clown 1: Maybe I should, if it’s time for my medicine…

Clown 2: It’s time for my medicine!

Clown 1: (begins to open the medicine) Well, if it’s time for my medicine, I guess I should take it…

(At this point, the teacher/pastor/authority figure, or third clown comes out, and explains to the children that you should never take someone else’s medicine — skit ends with the teacher telling the clowns that taking the wrong medicine can be very unpleasant)

Clown 1: I wonder what could be ‘unpleasant’ about the wrong medicine? (opens the medicine, and a snake pops out — Clown 1 reacts & runs off-stage)
