ALADDIN COMEDY SCRIPT
The wicked wizard Abanazaar seeks ultimate power to rule the world. But unfortunately, the power is only given to those who are worthy. Despite his assurances that he will use it to fix the hole in the ozone layer, he is not deemed worthy. But there is one who is. His name is Aladdin, and he is currently pretending he is royalty (but hiding out as a peasant), so that he doesn’t get executed for staring at the local Princess. Aladdin is being hunted by the fierce Gung Ho, and fears for his life.
When Abanazaar arrives in Peking, he seeks Aladdin out and pretends to be a long lost relative. When he promises that he has a ‘get rich quick’ scheme up his sleeve, Aladdin sees his chance to prove he is worthy of the Princess by getting load of money, and so agrees to enter a magical cave and retrieve a lamp for Abanazaar to do so. But things get even better when Aladdin rubs the lamp himself, unleashing the secret agent Genie inside and his sidekick, Miss FunnyPenny. This suits Aladdin perfectly, until Abanazaar steals the lamp back from him….and tries to kill him….
