Stupid Skits
ADD A STUPID SKIT!

Bored Cowboys

You will need 5 actors for this skit.

This skit is a great one to use to intro the next big thing in your program. Read the NOTE at the bottom of this simple skit.

The scene opens with all 5 cowboys sitting in chairs facing the crowd. The chairs are in a straight line. All of the cowboys have their right leg crossed over their left leg. Every cowboy has on a cowboy hat that is pulled down over their eyes a bit, as though they were resting. Arrange the cowboys from smallest (1) to biggest (5).

Cowboy #1: (to cowboy #2) Is it time yet?

Cowboy #2: (to cowboy #3) Is it time yet?

Cowboy #3: (to cowboy #4) Is it time yet?

Cowboy #4: (to cowboy #5) Is it time yet?

Cowboy #5: (lifts the bill of his cowboy hat to look up at the sun and says to cowboy #4) Naw.

Cowboy #4: (to cowboy #3) Naw.

Cowboy #3: (to cowboy #2) Naw.

Cowboy #2: (to cowboy #1) Naw.

Cowboy #1: (clearly unhappy with the answer he has received from cowboy #5. He drums his fingers on his knees for a few seconds, shifts a little in his chair and says to cowboy #2) How bout now?

Cowboy #2: (to cowboy #3) How bout now?

Cowboy #3: (to cowboy #4) How bout now?

Cowboy #4: (to cowboy #5) How bout now?

Cowboy #5: (looks at a watch he pulls from his pocket and says to cowboy #4) Nope.

Cowboy #4: (to cowboy #3) Nope.

Cowboy #3: (to cowboy #2) Nope.

Cowboy #2: (to cowboy #1) Nope.

Cowboy #1: (gets incredibly antsy in his seat. he shifts around, squirms, drums his fingers some more, huffs a little bit, and is obviously upset with the decision from cowboy #5 again. after a moment, he leans over and asks cowboy #2) Now!?

Cowboy #2: (to cowboy #3) Now!?

Cowboy #3: (to cowboy #4) Now!?

Cowboy #4: (to cowboy #5) Now!?

Cowboy #5: (looks around, and down the line of cowboys to cowboy #1 and says to cowboy #4) I reckon.

Cowboy #4: (to cowboy #3) I reckon.

Cowboy #3: (to cowboy #2) I reckon.

Cowboy #2: (to cowboy #1) I reckon.

Cowboy #1: Yee Haw! (when he says this, ALL 5 cowboys slowly and dramatically lift their right leg off their left leg and put it on the floor, then they slowly and dramatically lift their left leg and cross it over their right leg. the slower and more dramatic this maneuver is, the funnier it will be. Then all 5 cowboys resume their restful, satisfied look from the beginning of the skit)

NOTE: At this point, the leader can come forward and say, “Now I reckon it’s time for the _______________ we’ve been talking about!” (This could be a video clip, a game, an announcement, a winner from a contest, a drawing, etc. Have fun!)
