Family Separation – a dark comedy skit about parents separating. From their kids

dark comedy skit


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.

The Masked Avenger – superhero skit

superhero skit


When there’s danger….he’ll come. When there’s a damsel in distress….he’ll come. When there’s life threatening circumstances….he’ll be there to save the day. All you need to do to call him is to give the super signal in this superhero skit.

But one day, two policeman get to reminiscing about old times and working with The Masked Avenger. The fact that they’re in the same vicinity as the super signal seems too good to be true. So….they press it. What happens next?
