My 14 year old daughter is looking for some help and advice. She and a couple of her drama oriented friends want to perform a comedy sketch or two for the school. She has already had some success with an external small drama group who did the Python’s “Michaelangelo and the Pope – Last Supper” sketch but she thinks this may be just a bit edgy for her conservative all-girls school (“too jewish”).
So does anyone have any ideas? British sketches are generally preferred. As the audience is pretty young even hackneyed Python sketches are fresh to these new ears – however I am looking for something a bit more obscure. Fry and Laurie perhaps, the Two Ronnies (the “bad breath sketch” is a particular favourite of mine), or Victoria Wood (which may be more suitable given the all female actors and audience). All suggestions gratefully considered. Here’s an old Douglas Adams radio sketch with some potential.
