Stupid Skits

Radio Jumble

This is an easy to perform skit in which seven people are used. All seven persons (A,B,C,D,E,F, and G) simply stand in front of the audience and read the script below when their turn comes. To introduce the skit, announce that this is what happened one day when you were trying to find a radio station to listen to. Each of the readers can wear a sign with the name of a radio station on it, or dress up in costume. Each “click” below indicates a station change. (The “clicks” can be inserted at the appropriate times by an offstage sound effects person Ðor- if you have a real talented person who is great at different voices, you can have them do all the characters.)
