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…)
Donuts and Freckles, a skit for two clowns, demonstrating what baptism is, and isn’t. Original by Raynbow the Clown.
Props: A donut, a (clear) glass of white milk, a washcloth, a sponge, a scrub brush, a bottle of Windex, sandpaper, and Comet cleanser
Skit starts with Clown 1 entering, addressing the audience
Clown 1: (looking at his watch) Good morning, everyone! This morning, my helper Clown 2 and I are going to demonstrate what Baptism means — (glances at watch again) — except that Clown 2 is late, and he promised to bring my visual aids!
Clown 2: Here I am! (enters, carrying donut and glass of milk)
Clown 1: (looking slightly upset) Where have you been? And where are the visual aids? (more…)
This is a demonstration of a simple paper tear, that requires only a normal 8.5” x 11” sheet of paper. I’ve done it many times, both in clown makeup and in my “civilian disguise” for pre-teen audiences. I recently did it impromptu after a church dinner for our local youth group and was pleasantly surprised by their reaction. It’s a nice attention-getter, allowing you to use it as a springboard to present the gospel since the paper tear ends with a large paper cross and paper snippets that together form the word ‘HELL’ .
BREAKING THE LAW: THE WAY TO SALVATION — courtesy of Shelley Hitz, hitzshel75 at cs.com, a clown skit for 3 speaking clowns
A big poster with the ten commandments written on them (could look like stone tablets) saying at the top “God’s standards for Life”
A few balloons with a sign that says, “Balloons for sale $1 each”
A big Bible
Clown 1 Walks in with a big Bible under his arm. He sees the Ten Commandments and mentally goes through each one (looks at it or points at it, then thinks about it and nods his head affirmatively that yes he’s kept that one). Clown 1 is showing a very self-righteous attitude. (more…)

Free Gospel clown skit with kneesy earsy nosey – for 2 or more clowns
A simple gospel skit that’s fairly flexible—for example, it can be done with two speaking clowns, or one speaking clown and one audience participant, either adult or child.
