Need 20 Minutes of Comedy


Jim Mace, Sacramento, California, wrote “I’m looking for a short skit about teenagers and high school life in the 1950s and ’60s. A semi-comedy to last between 10 and 20 minutes.”


My inclination was to suggest he write his own, but thought I’d check first to see if any of the experts at the National Association of Reunion Managers (NARM) knows of or has an answer.

Kandy Davidson, 1st Class Reunions, Loganville, Georgia, also suggested Mace write his own skit after talking to people in that age group about their funny experiences.

Carol Riley, Reunions Unlimited, Olympia, Washington, agreed that he write his own based on his class. Another approach is to watch old TV shows for ideas, or at least jog his memory! Riley had one class that did a skit of announcements over the school’s public address system. This year they hosted a 40-year reunion and brought in the current HS Band and Cheerleaders!

Reunion Specialists, Carlsbad, California, suggested any of the songs from Grease would be cute and could easily be adapted.
