    I need help

    Ok... for my drama class I need to do a clown act to get a mark for my year 10 certificate. The thing is, I am not funny at all and I have no idea what clowns do. So this is where you are all going to help me. I need ideas! All I need is some ideas about what I could wear, some jokes that are stupid but are still funny at the same time, and just pretty much anything me and this other person im working with can do. We have learnt how to make it look like we are hurting people when we really arent so I can do things like that as well. I have to perform it to about 60 year 8s and 20 grade 10s, so they arent going to laugh much :wth: . Thats why you funny people need to help me!! If you are going to help me (please ) you have to remember that clowns have to act like they are 5 and cant really be mean to people. I also have to involve the audience.
    Im scared. HELP ME PLEASE!!!

    even though clowns frighten me, my one piece of advice, is to throw a pie in someone's face. that will get laughter. and trick flowers work wonders too. if you can act like you're in pain, a lot of people laugh at that.

    um try telling jokes about things that happen in real life or do something that amuses teens, none of which i can think of right now.

    Make ballon animals!

    Seriously though, if you know how to do that, make a ballon animal, then release it into someones face, then laugh.

    I know it's not the best idea but I can't think of anything else.

    Good luck though.

    Alright, the steps to becoming a clown:

    Step 1
    Costume: Get a multi-colored wig and a colorful stripes or polkadotted suit. You can find clown suits and wigs in costume shops which sell Halloween stuff. You're going to also want a red nose and you're going to have to paint your face white with make-up.
    Step 2
    Posture: Be really energetic and hyper. Never stand in one spot. Clowns are always moving and jumping around, unless they're doing stuff like making balloon animals. Always smile, nobody likes a sad clown. :
    Step 3
    Act: There's the pie-throwing, the fake flower which squirts water, the juggling, and harder things like tying balloon animals. I don't know, google it.

    How I know this, I have no idea. I guess I'm imaginative. Good luck!

    PS: You have a MESSED UP drama class. All we do is improv, and only in front of the other 10 people in our class, not a huge audience.

    Just act like a total idiot. Everybody loves an idiot. That's why people laugh at me and with me.

    Silly string. Lots of silly string.

    Juggle.

    Uncycle.

    Hold a lighter to your ass and fart if anything else.

    I know how you can be funny. Wear a mask of my face &#33;

    Seriously, I dunno how to be funny. I just say stupid things. And notice stupid things and people seem to laugh at that.

    What you could do is like maek your hair look funny. Not like a wig. The clown doctors have like these weird hair. Its like... mmkay. O_o

    You can try flirting with some of the 10 grades and like make it into something funny somehow. I did taht in my school when I was a freshmen. I even pretended I was pregnant with someones child.

    Hope this helps. Good luck &#33;

    Here are my ideas Amy:

    Put on some funky music, like James Brown, or The Breakestra and try to dance all funky to it. Like, do the snake dance all funny and sh*t.

    Or, get water balloons and juggle them and have them purposely pop on you or your buddies.

    Get a tricycle and ride it all around and fall off it over and over.

    Get banana peels and pretend to slip on them onto some cream pies.

    You could light yourself on fire and run around screaming. Or start dancing to Batman music or something.

    Just keep falling over.

    And I wasn&#39;t joking about those ideas, Amy. I would do them myself if I had to do this assignment.

    See, even Mark says dacning to music is funny&#33; Just put on some cheesy music and shake it like a goof...err, clown&#33;
