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…)
Thou Shalt Not Covenant – a clown skit for two speaking clowns, typically a white face and an auguste, although any 2 clowns would do, an original skit by Raynbow D Clown, suggested by a discussion in the Clown Ministry group at groups.yahoo.com
(props required: a Bible, either actual or large foam prop)
(Clown 1 enters carrying Bible — Clown 2 follows directly after him, shadowing him – when Clown 1 stops, Clown 2 stops. When Clown 1 turns, so does Clown 2, staying out of site of Clown 1. This goes on for a minute, milking this gag for all it”s worth. Finally, Clown 1 catches Clown 2 in the act.)
Clown 1: So there you are! What are you doing? (more…)

A new creature in Christ – a clown ministry skit for 2 speaking clowns
Props: a large cardboard box (think refrigerator box), or something equivalent. Assuming that you have (or acquired) a refrigerator box, cut out a large window in the top, so the audience can see the clown once he enters. You could also have a flashlight hidden on the bottom of the box, so the clown can stoop down and flash the light as the device is working. You also want to draw with a marker some settings, such as “Clown,” “Chicken,” and “Christian”. Also a Bible, either real or clown prop.
At the beginning of the skit, Clown 1 pushes the box (think “transmogrifier” from the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip) on stage.
Clown 1: There! That’s done! Now, I need to find a victim … I mean, volunteer! (more…)

Clown One: I am going to talk to you guys about prayer. We have the Lord’s Prayer that we all know, but I pray differently when I’m by myself. I usually start out by saying, “Hello, Heavenly Father!”
Clown Two: Hello. (more…)
