Bad news, Pluto – comedy sketch for ten actors

comedy sketch for ten actors


It’s the annual planetary meeting and the planets are awaiting the arrival of Pluto, the ninth planet. Or at least until last week. Now Pluto has been reclassified and it’s their job to let him know that from this day forward Pluto will no longer be considered a real planet, merely a dwarf planet in this comedy sketch for ten actors.

But there are perks. After all, the dwarf planets get to hold their own dwarf planetary meeting, too. At a club. With beer and strippers. Maybe being a dwarf planet won’t be so bad after all…

Better safe than sorry – ten minute comedy for 3 actors

ten minute comedy for three actors


Jack still thinks he’s dating Lorrie. Lorrie thinks he isn’t as she clearly dumped him last week. So when Jack pitches up at her house with candy (which she hates to be honest) it couldn’t have come at a more inconvenient moment. The truth is that she’s getting ready for her hot date with Melvin, the local hottie in this ten minute comedy for three actors.

Jack decides to let both Lorrie and Melvin know, once and for all, that she’s his girl. He answers the door with all the bravado in the world and then make a quick about turn as he realizes Melvin is the biggest man he has ever met. It’s clear he won’t be able to fight him for her. So he comes up with a new tactic. A deadly disease. Genetic – and Lorrie is a sufferer.

But will Melvin buy this crock of cow poo?

Thirds – suburban satire play about inheriting a house

satire play


Muriel Tuck, a quirky widow who succumbs to a burst aneurysm, has left her estate to be divided equally among her three adult daughters. The oldest, Delilah, is the executor of the will and the mother of three young children. She intends to sell the sisters’ girlhood home and to divide the proceeds between them. This plan is amenable to the middle daughter, neurotic librarian Olivia, whose primary concern is family harmony. But the youngest daughter, Maya, still lives rent-free in her late mother’s house, and refuses to leave. Instead, she begins constructing a brick wall across the living room—separating her one-third from the two-thirds belonging to her sisters. Maya acknowledges that her sisters may sell their parts of the house—“like a lopsided duplex”—but she refuses to give up her portion, and its “lifetimes of memories,” under any circumstances in this suburban satire play about inheriting a house.

Enter Phyllis Hofmeyer. Phyllis, a former schoolmate of the Tuck sisters, wishes to purchase the house because she wants her own daughters to have “as wonderful a childhood” as she imagines the Tuck girls enjoyed as children. She is so determined to purchase the property that even Maya’s fabrications regarding the calamitous condition of the house—infestations of fire ants and bedbugs and termites, the tale of a fourth sister murdered by an escaped baboon, etc.—prove unable to dissuade her. But as Phyllis’s motivations become clearer, and increasingly more disturbing, Maya is not the only Tuck daughter who begins to have second thoughts.

Thirds offers a satiric romp through suburbia, and a heartfelt, if zany, account of one family’s efforts to make the best of life’s plenteous surprises. It is intended to be off-beat, provocative and fun.

Other plays by author Jacob Appel – The Mistress of Wholesome – one act comedy where Mistress takes on Wife

Author: Jacob Appel

Type: Two-act play

Genre: Satire play

Cast: 4F

Ages of the actors: Late twenties to early thirties

Suitable for: Adults to perform, all ages to watch

Length: 90-110 minutes

Set: The entire play takes place in the combination living room / dining room of the Tuck residence in an upscale suburb of New York City. One door exits to the garage stairs, the other to the kitchen and beyond. Neither the garage nor the kitchen are visible. Those who favor realism might furnish the stage with a damask sofa stacked high with pillows, an assortment of armchairs, a rocking chair, cluttered bookshelves, armoires filled with knickknacks, a dining room service beneath a chandelier, and a crescent-shaped glass coffee-table of the variety that was fashionable during the 1970s. A tablecloth should cover the dining room table; a bouquet of flowers sits in a vase on the tabletop. High budget productions might include a piano—although no one in the Tuck household has played a piano in many years, nor ever played one well. Above all, the room should appear “lived-in”: pizza boxes open on the coffee table, old board games piled high on the sofa. Also gardening supplies, an easel, maybe works of sculpture in progress. In short, this is what happens when a free-spirited twenty-seven year old takes over a house from a middle-aged matron.

This Seat’s Taken – one act romantic comedy about OCD

comedy about OCD


Every day, every single day, Leo gets up, washes up, gets dressed by pulling items of clothing from his wardrobe from day specific sections, heads to the library, selects one book and heads to the coffee shop where he reads and finishes the book, while enjoying their house brew in this comedy about OCD. This is his morning routine. This is what he knows and this is what he likes… or at least it’s what he thinks he likes. When Maya decides to join Leo for coffee, unexpectedly, one morning, Leo quite honestly has no idea what do with her. Putting his routine at risk is some random woman who offers him something besides the house brew to taste, asks him questions about his reading material he can do without and has the audacity to poke at his sanity, sense of adventure and tolerance for those things that throw him off. Nonetheless, Maya’s endearing (or determined) qualities result in the unlikely duo forming a bond close enough that she becomes a part of his schedule. Just as he gets comfortable with the idea of her being around she throws him for a loop when she asks him to accompany her to a play and one morning, Leo decides to buy the tickets…

The seat’s taken but by all means, let the eclectic, confused and curious looking woman take it.

Twisted Lucy Fans – one act dark comedy about Lucille Ball fans



It’s 1989.  Lucille Ball, the iconic actress and star of “I Love Lucy” has just died. Italian-American (not that it matters… much) writer and prince of princes, Alex, is being interviewed for his contributions to gay culture and his work as a novelist in this dark comedy about Lucille Ball fans.  Though he’s not quite a successful author, who’s really, keenly, seriously keeping tabs on that point?

Enter (literally, into the interview) Todd,  Mike’s diva extraordinaire of a friend, who believes Mike is at most a sketchy if not at the least unreliable in his knowledge of everything gay and in particular the life and times of the gay goddess Lucille Ball. The young, straight and very handsome Kyle should be interviewing Todd instead, according to Todd. It seems, however, that all of  Alex’s associates, friends and brother Mike want in on the interview, and they take over the conversation.

Kyle bravely and patiently soldiers on through the frustrating, interesting and brutally honest telling of the nitty gritty of what, who and how a gay man exists in the world. It isn’t until a shocking scandal befalls the unsung author that Kyle realizes he just may have an exclusive on his hands. He also believes the scandal will catapult the romance novelist into a media sensation-which is guaranteed to increase the sales and interest of Alex’s novels!

Oh and then at some point when tensions could not get any higher the instigator of incest, overly-degenerate ‘degenerate’ and obvious source of ‘beastly’ desires amongst these men,  Mike,  finds a gun. Mike aims it at Alex’s newest (really new, even for him) lover Stefano. Someone gets shot… and it ain’t Stefano.

It is Father Daniel’s first day at St. Nicholas’ Parish and walking into his office, he has no idea what exactly he has been lead into by his no-nonsense secretary, Mrs Brubaker in this one act comedy about a priest. Within a minute of him trying to settle in, Father Daniel is visited by the Bishop himself in all his intimidating splendour. The Bishop politely asks (in other words, warns) Fr. Daniel’s to make use of his experience in public relations towards making the annual St. Nicholas Patronal Festival a success.

Fr. Daniel no doubt smells his placement at St. Nicholas as hanging in the balance of the Festival turning out splendidly or an event that is not an embarrassment to his holiness the Bishop. With his job threatened in the first few minutes of him starting it, the Father must ensure he impresses the Bishop and the Festival’s committee which has its own legacy to uphold. In one act, Father explores the best of church politics and the comedy behind what you may see as a serious confession.

Lovely to look at – comedy about community theatre

comedy about community theatre


In community theatre, every actor is the star of the show… or rather every actor has convinced themself of this ‘fact’. In Lovely to Look At, a comedy about community theatre, poor Marvin, the director, has to deal with the egos, the ‘I’m better than these community theatre amateurs’ nonsense and general ‘joy’ that actors drag with them onto every, single production. It’s supposed to be the first rehearsal: the rehearsal that sets the tone, the beginning of a beautiful thing, the match that sets the world on fire but for the last twenty minutes there has been zero rehearsing. Zero. None. Nada.

No doubt creative juices have flown but it seems all the actors have committed to a session of fake discoveries over the phone (Leandra) boozing (Leandra, primarily) and getting fired and rehired in less than five minutes (you got it: Leandra once more). Alright so when it comes to this production, Leandra is the problem but it soon becomes clear that she may lead the way to the solution and embody it (the way that only an actress can) soon enough.

An actor’s work is never finished but your patience may be.

The actors – a comedy about the afterlife

comedy about the afterlife


When Harbo stumbles into an unfamiliar place, dressing gown on and a toothbrush still in his mouth, he is greeted by the most unlikely vision: A Full Barbershop quartet singing at him, who call on celebrities composed (pardon the pun) of pretty famous but also pretty dead people, (such as William Shakespeare) in this comedy about the afterlife.

They bring tidings: He’s dead. Of course he doesn’t believe them, so they go out of their way to prove it to him – first of all by telling him stuff from his life and then be reenacting scenes from it (of which William Shakespeare is terribly critical of, being that way inclined).

Once he has accepted the news, he then gets sorted into whether he’s going to Heaven or Hell and if it’s the former, well, there could be a new opening in the barbershop quartet in his future, if he wants it?

Although the cast is large in this comedy about the afterlife, it would also suit smaller casts where more than one small role can be taken by the same actor.
