Wedding Flower – skit about a homophone misunderstanding

WEDDING FLOWER – SKIT ABOUT A HOMOPHONE MISUNDERSTANDING

It’s always important to get your homophones correct. What’s a homophone? Well – it’s two words with completely different meanings (and sometimes spellings) that SOUND the same.  Now in the wedding business, that kind of thing could be very important. As one unfortunate bride is about to find out. Instead of $10000 of flowers she receives $10000 of FLOUR! All dyed pink, as requested. In fact, she’s so upset, she wants to cancel the wedding. Because no girl wants to walk down the aisle simply covered in pink flour in this skit about a homophone misunderstanding!!!!

ONE FINE DAY AT THE VET – SATIRICAL COMEDY SKETCH ABOUT A NUTTY CLIENT

In this short satirical comedy sketch, our well meaning vet is taken for a ride by the worst kind of client imaginable.  When she presents her cat (in tears) she swears she has tried everything! Wheat grass, borax acid, extract of turmeric and even tincture of arsenic.  Nothing has worked! Thus, she has decided, after doing some research (On Google, of course) that Fluffy needs to go “Over The Rainbow Bridge” because if nothing works, Fluffy must have “cancer.”

Naturally she is totally nuts, and it turns out that Fluffy actually is quite a young cat, so our helpful vet spends the next few minutes trying to persuade her to let him/her look at Fluffy because it may be something the vet can help with. Of course, Mrs Jones disagrees, because, after all, what could a vet do that she, Mrs Jones couldn’t diagnose and treat just from Google? But … it turns out that it is all a fancy ruse and Mrs Jones has another, far weirder goal in mind.

X’s and O’s – FIVE MINUTE COMEDY SKETCH FOR SENIORS

X’s and O’s is a five minute comedy sketch for an older couple set on their anniversary. They’re both slightly grumpy, as older people can be when they have outgrown the need for tact. The concept of the play is one in which the only dialogue spoken is the opposite of of what the other just said. The name X’s & O’s come from thinking how, as in Tic-Tac-Toe they’re opposites, but also Kisses & Hugs.

JULEO AND ROMIET – SKIT ON ROMEO AND JULIET

Short skit on Romeo and Juliet in which the ill fated couple from the town of Blurona meet and get secretly married. All the boring bits are cut out from the ever so long play (yawn) to focus on the final scene….the DEATH SCENE. It’s the Friar’s fault really. Having persuaded Romiet to drink his potion to fake her death, he finds that Juleo is missing (oh no!) and so he sets off in search of him to let him know it is only a trick, only to leave Juleo to find the “dead” Romiet, and stab himself in the heart thinking she is dead. So far so good. However Romiet wakes up, sees the plot has gone horribly wrong and decides to consult the original Shakespearean version to find out what happened, only to die of boredom!

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.
