Slim FAT commercial – skit about weight loss fads

skit about weight loss fads


This short skit about weight loss fads pokes fun at the weight loss fads and the gimmicks people use as well as the advertisements that promote them. From a thin guy wearing enormous pants to the man in a bikini because “All weight loss adverts have someone in a bikini!” to the referee who appears to break up a fight between the two guys, it’s all fun from beginning to end.

Please note: The full skit is 1.5 pages long – about 2 minutes.

Trump – I’m not a RACIST! Skit

Donald Trump skit


Donald Trump is sitting tweeting one day, when a very nervous Press Secretary enters, saying that they need to talk. About? “Well – about the allegations.” “Allegations?” “That you’re racist. Racist?!!!!” Trump is flabbergasted. He can’t be racist. Most of his staff are Mexicans. So he can’t be. And he eats at Taco Bell. And he lets the black guy win at The Apprentice sometimes. Donald sets out to set things right in the only way he knows how in this Trump racist skit.
