re: Spring Racing Carnival: Get Your Hobbit On

Do you feel like the kinship doesn't provide enough opportunities for random silliness?

(Really? Have you seen kinchat lately?)

Oh, wait ... this is supposed to be an ad. Umm ...

I need 3 or 4 daring volunteers to help me put on some sketch comedy-style routines. I don't have any serious ideas yet ... I'm thinking of ripping off something from the Muppets or a similar show.

Please post here if you're available April 25th from roughly 1 o'clock for an hour or so. Hobbits preferred but all are welcome.


Edit:

I'm thinking a neat thing would be a couple of musical acts and a Gori-style interactive story (which I'll make up ... something about chasing the bacon ghost ship :P ) I'm not much for jokes or skits but I think I could pull that off and with some musically talented folks to help out it should be easy and fun.

re: Spring Racing Carnival: Get Your Hobbit On

In case it's any help, here are some things that previous years rodeo clowns have done:

* Played songs with humorous lyrics.
* Did a stand-up comedy routine with jokes.
* Performed a comedy skit -- think Abbot and Costello's "Who's On First?"
* Incorporated circus style antics with handstands, fire breathing, juggling, and silly emotes.

Most rodeo clowns wear an outrageous costume.

Here's a picture of the sore thumbs:

Here are real life rodeo clowns:

Oddly enough, a Google search for "best rodeo clown outfits" brought up this image!

Ok, Laura should be able to help out.

Looking for one more.

I've begun work on the comedy routine (just a bunch of jokes). I looked through the BBB and LMB music libraries for some silly songs we could do with 2 - 3 people. Suggestions welcome.

We have some great Banders who write awesome lyrics -- perhaps one will volunteer to make an ABC for us?

Comedy routing is coming along. If it's not too much trouble, Laura, I'd like to practice it this weekend so we can see how long it takes. As I understand it, we need to fill 1/2 hour.

If someone could put together a Muppets theme, that would rule. (Ideally 2 parts)

re: Spring Racing Carnival: Get Your Hobbit On

Do you have one or more volunteers, ready to help you?

Here are some more songs I tested in Maestro and uploaded, in case it's helpful.
All the ones starting with "MP" are from Monty Python.
I know some of them require too many musicians but... hey, they're out there. :)

re: Spring Racing Carnival: Get Your Hobbit On

Hey, I do! Laura and I had a practice run last Saturday. We're a little light on content but have some jokes and songs.

We're going to have another practice this coming Saturday AM (let's say around 10 AM unless Laura objects). Then we can try cobbling together what we have, timing it and seeing how much goofing off time we need to wedge in.

re: Spring Racing Carnival: Get Your Hobbit On

Could you please post a picture of the clowns in costume, to use for advertising before the big day?
A 600 pixel wide, 400 pixel high image works best, but I can trim and resize anything.
Do you have a name for yourselves? (IE: Last year we had the Sore Thumbs.)

Thanks!

re: Spring Racing Carnival: Get Your Hobbit On

Here's a link to the script.

Also, I am going to try to get on tonight for a practice run. There is a tornado warning for my area (North TX) so things may be weird with regard to electricity, etc.

Clown show folks:

Our thing starts at 1:30 server time and runs until 2pm.

I am planning on being on around 11 AM server time so we can practice.

Also, I have an outfit for us to wear.

re: Spring Racing Carnival: Get Your Hobbit On

Just had an exhausting day/week, sincere apologies that it's been hard to find a time this week for practice. I'll set my alarm and join you at 11am.

Looking forward to the show - Let Us Sing! (dance/munch on pies).
