X’s and O’s – five minute comedy sketch for seniors

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.

The audition – funny short play for a cast of three about an audition

short comedy for 3 people


It’s always nerve wracking going to audition for a part in a play. Getting the words right, coming across the way you think the directors want you to come across. And when they simply look bored, its ten times worse. So when Misty arrives at her audition and they give her just ten minutes to prepare, she wants to scream. Until she finds out she has to. Scream, that is. Scream as though her audition depended on it. It does. A funny short play for a cast of three.

Trump: American Nightmare – short Donald Trump skit

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?
