It’s all around me – courtesy of Kenneth Reynolds

Here is a little “filler” to use between parts of your program.  We adapted it from something we found on the Boy Scouts skit site.

Usually, between our 2nd and third skits, we have a clown enter the congregation from outside the room, shouting “it’s all around me, it’s all around me!” as many times as it takes to enter, run up the middle aisle and out of the room again.  We proceed with our program without taking note of this episode.  After another skit or part of the program, this same clown enters and does the same thing.  We do another skit or part of the program.  Then out comes the same clown doing the same thing.  This time, he/she is met at the point where he/she entered by a clown who has been waiting, hands on hips looking annoyed.  As the clown reaches the exit point the second clown stops him/her.  “Hold it, hold it right there Buster.  You have been running in here yelling it’s all around me, it’s all around me, disrupting our program and bothering these good people.  Now I, and they (gesture to the audience), want to know just what this has all been about and just what is it that has been all around you?” Whereupon the first clown looks to the audience, and with a look of happiness says … “Why, GOD’S love is all around me of course.”

It always brings affirmative responses from our audiences.  Of course, you could run this gag more or less times depending on the length of your program.

Our group likes this little filler a lot and it is simple to do but effective.
