Comic Relief - What Sketch Would YOU Do?

I just found this DELIGHTFUL video of David Tennant and Michael Sheen doing a sketch with Comic Relief for charity. Who knew Comic Relief was still a thing?! I remember when Billy, Whoopi, and Robin were the engine for that organization.

In any case, it got me thinking - what sketch would YOU do for charity? Have you been practicing sketch comedy at a distance? SHARE BELOW!

That was fun. I have not acted since 90’s so not been practicing a sketch but if it was for charity would freely replay the sketches with Joan Collins and Leonard Rossiter Martini adverts. He accidentally hoses her with a drink in an aeroplane. (Which I once did on purpose, equal opportunities).

That would be fun, Debbie! And I feel acting is for everyone, just in various forms. My family started doing Murder Mystery birthday parties as a fun way to do virtual "in character" celebrations.

Thank you for sharing. I love those two! Over here in the UK Comic Relief never went anywhere. It's massive every year!

Kate Dones

This pair can make anything a great masterpiece... even if it was one whole hour where they had to win try and win the love of a plush doll or even a pencil. Comic relief especially nowadays is quite a necessity.

Had they worked together before Good Omens? That's how I know of them working together previously.

Freyja Seren

No, Good Omens was the first time they acted together. Staged was completely brilliant, too. Watching them, you'd think they grew up together XD

Getting back to your original question, though, I love taking Shakespeare's plays and turning them slightly upside down-ish - Juliet as a tactical young person conniving her way out of a controlling household, Ophelia as a deeply thoughtful and intelligent creative, anything with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Beyond Shakespeare I started writing a retelling of Cinderella and performed a monologue from it outlining the Stepmother as the good guy. It's fab! (if do say so myself :))
