The Skit Library I
A Compendium of Skits from various sources.
The Important Papers The setting can be either a king or a boss
in his office who beckons to a courtier or assistant that he
wants his royal or important papers. The person runs in with a
sheath of papers, the king or boss quite agitated tosses them
aside and demands that they bring him his important papers.
Other people bring in other things one at a time such as a Boy
Scout Handbook etc. the king throws them aside and gets more and
more upset demanding that he have his important papers. At last
the some one comes in with a roll of toilet paper (court jester,
office boy etc.). The king knights him or the boss promotes him
thanking him profusely and runs off the stage in visible relief.
Is It Time Yet? Have several boys standing in a line (facing
the audience) with one arm on the next boys shoulder. The first
boy in line looks at the second and asks the second boy, "IS it
time yet?" The second boy asks the third boy the same question
and so on down the line. The boy at the end of the line looks at
his watch and says to the boy next to him, "No, its not time
yet," and this continues on up the line to the first boy in the
line again with each boy saying it in turn. This can continue a
couple times; then when it gets to the last boy, he says, "It's
time!" and when the message gets back to the first boy each boy
moves his arm from the other's shoulder and puts his other arm
on the boy next to him. Variation: Everyone is sitting down
instead of sitting up with their legs crossed the same way. When
the time comes all they do is switch legs simultaneously.
