These are just a few of the dozens of comedy sketches I’ve written. I originally posted them here for a comedy acting workshop I led in Ann Arbor, Michigan. They’re still good practice for anyone wanting to try comedy acting. Most are just 2 actors. A few need 3 or 4 people.
M and F designate Male and Female characters. P = Person of either gender. These denotations are for reading purposes only. Some scripts marked with P would be better filmed with a particular gender (such as the three wise men in He’s No Savior). Some scripts are in standard format (“script format”), and others are still in MS Word (“line format”). The latter are sometimes less developed.
The first two scripts—MORE and Bad For You—are great to start with, because they are just a few lines, or a single paragraph. As complete projects, each of these will be filmed with a total of 20+ actors, but each role stands on its own and can be practiced and performed by itself.
