Clown Easter – an Easter Sunday skit for 4 clowns
This script is courtesy of Clowns for Christ
This was originally written for Easter 1998. The script, written for 4 clowns, is intentionally unfinished, because our Associate Pastor supplied the ending to surprise us, taking the role listed below as Non-Clown. Each clown can be played by a pair of clowns sharing the role.
Clown 1 enters whistling. She goes up to a wooden cross and begins trying to balance several eggs on the cross bar. They are real eggs so they will fall off and break, on a tarp placed under the cross. After she places each egg, she hops in place two or three times. Other clowns enter and watch for a moment. Finally, Clown 2 comes up. (more…)
What is Easter? A free clown skit for three speaking clowns, and one “normal” person
(Editor’s note: this skit is written by Raynbow the Clown, and is based on the joke “Three clowns at the gates of heaven.” Also note that it could be easily re-written for one clown, who is given three tries to get the answer right.)
The skit begins with the “normal” person (probably a children’s pastor) asking for volunteers from the audience to answer a simple question. The three clowns leap up and clownishly race to the front, eager to answer. (more…)

This skit is courtesy of TenderHeart, aka. Nelda Singer (email: oldlulubell at yahoo.com)
(set up: this clown skit is about several different small groups of clowns. No speaking parts. One man is dressed like Jesus and carries a sign that reads LOVE. One group starts off with maybe a man, woman and teenager on one side of the stage, the teenager is being unruly. In another section of the stage are two boys that are bullying each other. Another group is gossipy women, and a group of men in the back corner playing acting like they were playing dice and drinking.) (more…)
Dropping the Ball – This is a silent skit, for 2 or more clowns, based on an incident that happened to me at work. Props required are a cardboard box (with the bottom not taped shut, merely held together by the clown as he carries the box), containing a goodly number of rubber balls (or if you have more time to pick them up, ping pong balls, rubber eggs, etc.) (more…)
Good News or Bad News? an Easter Sunday clown skit for 6 or more clowns, courtesy of Clowns for Christ
Originally written for Easter 1997
Script is for a cast of Happy Clowns, Sad Clowns, and Adult Clowns, 6 of each kind. If needed, one clown can play more than one role of the same type of clown. Also, one Little Girl Clown.
Scene opens with a Little Girl Clown sitting center stage reading a book. Off to one side two or more Sad Clowns are sitting on the floor, looking…well, sad. Suddenly from the other side several young Happy Clowns enter playing kazoos. (more…)
The Bible Quiz, a free funny Christian clown skit for 2 (preferably more) speaking clowns. semi-Original by Raynbow the Clown.
(As you’ll soon see, this is based on an old joke that’s been floating around for years—but the skit is surprisingly funny regardless! My clown troupe did this in front of our congregation, with excellent results. In our case we had a tramp clown, T-bone, as the master of ceremonies, with the other clowns “ringing in” answers like on a game show—only we used clownish things to ring in, such as squeakers, a Harpo Marx-style horn, etc.) (more…)
