DONALD TRUMP: AMERICAN NIGHTMARE – SHORT DONALD TRUMP SKIT

It’s the night before the election results are announced and Donald Trump’s second worst nightmare is about to come true (The worst nightmare being his hair thinning a little on the top). The second worst nightmare is that he’s terribly, terribly afraid that he’s actually going to be made President – something he really doesn’t want at all. He never expected it to happen and now it looks like it’s about to come to pass. What will he do?

In a thoughtless moment he calls Hillary and Bill and tries to bargain with them, even bribing Bill with interns in a moment of desperation. But will they succumb in this short Donald Trump skit?

WOULD YOU LET ME FIN……….ish? SKIT FOR TWO WOMEN

A skit for two women about a semi famous psychic, Martha and her ardent fan, Amy.  Amy who is just walking down the street bumps into Martha and instantly recognizes her from her book, “Psychic Dreams and Premonitions.” They get to talking, although to be fair, neither lets the other finish her sentences, and keeps interrupting the other.

Amy, who fancies herself as an amateur psychic tells Martha about her most recent dream. About Martha. Martha starts out with an interpretation but doesn’t get a chance to respond.  Then Amy does the same thing until they are both slightly annoyed with each other.  Martha decides to get rid of Amy. But how will Martha she do it?  Well, in the most elaborate way possible. Using a psychic vision, of course!

In this Trump comedy sketch, Donald trump is taken before “The Committee” to review his appointment as President of the United States and to tell him that nobody wants him. He can’t go back to The Apprentice – they don’t want him. American Idol already have Simon Cowell, so they don’t need Trump as well.

Whilst Trump furiously tweets to his followers (all 25% of America) how everybody is being mean to him, the committee decides his fate. And in his own words (well almost) – He’s fired!!

But how does he take it?

MY LITTLE MERMAID – SKIT ON THE LITTLE MERMAID

In this skit on The Little mermaid, Arial, our little mermaid (Not to be confused with the font) has her eye set on Prince Error (an unfortunate name that he couldn’t really help) who is a human. The only way she can get married to him and have lots of little merchildren is to become human. Since she is just sixteen, she just doesn’t have a checking account or even a credit card so she gives the evil sea queen, ”Umbrella” her voice as payment.

But the story ends well – she gets her voice back. Although she kind of sounds like Pinky Pie, nobody minds, really. As long as she doesn’t sing. Ever!! And they live happily ever after.

With Snotty beating up the captain and a member of the crew inexplicably dying of something weird every episode, it’s not surprising that the ship finally crash lands in a somewhat familiar place in this two to three minute short skit.

DOCTOR DUPLICATE – SHORT MEDICAL SKIT

In this short, giggle filled medical skit, a doctor miraculously cures his patients – by taking their symptoms onto himself. When they’re sick, he gets their cold and cures them. When they stutter, he stammers his way to a cure for them. As the day goes on it gets funnier as the symptoms persist, one on top of the other. But when a pregnant lady arrives – well that’s just a bit too much for the good doctor!
