Short Cuts Comedy Sketch Collection
Short Cuts
(Five pun-filled skits for "dummies")

Live actors become puppet dummies in these hilarious sketches.  By cutting some old
suits, putting gloves on the sleeves, and shoes on their hands, performers appear ¼ normal
size.  A funny sight!  A ventriloquist completes the illusion by grasping the backs of their
necks. Lots of laughs when they're "lifted up" with their feet kicking.  Each skit is a great
vaudeville act.  The dialog is sharp, crisp and thoroughly delightful.  Includes: 1. "Short"
on Smarts -- Dummy makes ventriloquist look dumb.  2. Money Talk -- Ventriloquist is
chided for being cheap.  3. Singing Harmony -- Two dummies argue over who sings
best.  4. The Science Lesson -- Ventriloquist tries to teach, but dummies have all the
answers.  5. The Gambler -- Ventriloquist gets a psychiatrist for gambling dummy.
Cast: M or W, 2 to 3 each skit, up to 13 players
Age level: Middle Grades to High School
Playing time: varies -- 4 to 7 minutes each

This outrageous collection of new skits will keep audiences in an uproar of hilarity.  Lots of parts for everyone.  Skits include, Coming Up in the World -- joke filled variety-show-introduction finds actors on easy to make stilts to prevent humor from going over their heads; Babbot and Cobello (Cobello Talks Business -- hilarious bank loan confusion & Dairy-Air Milkshake Parlor -- Cobello decides to go partners with his cow); Duel to the Death -- finicky duelists, having trouble "choosing their weapons", finish with audience-pleasing slapstick; Courthouse Capers -- The Honorable U.R.. Dunfore presides over joke-filled cases in court; Who's the Toughest? -- terrorizing tough guy, humorously humbled, finishes with funny "punch" line; Ashes to Ashes -- husband trouble, including problem of his ashes; An Empty Stomach -- a skit to tease the "empty-headed" principal or mayor, etc.; First Day at School -- students overwhelmed by classical education; Back to Bach -- Bach and Offenbach involved in confusing "identity crisis."
