FAMILY SEPARATION – A DARK COMEDY SKIT ABOUT PARENTS SEPARATING. FROM THEIR KIDS.

When Andrew and Andrea set their kids, Fran and Francis down at the table to talk about something important, the kids naturally assume their parents are going to get a divorce. After all, they have been fighting an awful lot. So it comes as a huge shock when their parents inform them that, yes, they are legally separating, but, no, it’s not from each other, but from their kids. After all, the kids are the source of the problems they’ve been having, really. Without them, they’d have more money and even be able to go on that holiday they’d always wanted. Of course they’d have to move out. Who?  Why? Well, Andrew and Andrea are really attached to the house so it should be the kids that go. Simple? Of course it is! A dark comedy skit about parents separating from their kids.

YOU WANTED TO SEE ME?  COMEDY SKETCH ABOUT BEING LATE FOR WORK

Roger is a guy with a problem. A problem that’s recently become more and more noticeable to his line manager. What is it? Well -in the past two months he’s been late for work pretty much three days out of five. For a number of reasons. The usual ones – his alarm didn’t go off and his car wouldn’t start. And…those that are a little less usual, such as having a flock of giant bunnies gallop past his window one morning and being mugged for his travel card by a man in a dress. Not to mention the dognapping for half a million pounds he was recently involved in. The thing is – every single one of these reasons is true. Completely true. And today he’s being called to the big boss’s office to have a little meeting about it in this comedy sketch about being late for work.

The author will allow workshopping of the language in the script to make it more local to the area is it being staged.

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…
