Our school has a talent show coming up, and almost every year its monotonous singing and bad dancing, with the ocasional gymnastics routine or guitar player. I and a friend were trying to think of something fun and different to do, to get the crowd interested and laughing. We're not afraid to be silly in front of people - but we can't think of what to do that isn't OVERLY stupid.
Any insight on this? Details would be great...not something just like "Do a skit."
marnannaro02 answered Wednesday December 24 2008, 11:11 am: okay. get a bunch of your friends together and bunch of teachers together. Pick a song to dance to with your friends.Have hte music stop all of a sudden and have one of your friends be like "sorry for the confusion. We'll start over" Then have a teacher come out and be like "so need to start over" then have the group of teachers come out and just start dancing randomly.ALSOOOOOOO.....

We are about to do throw alot of talent shows ourselves so contact us if you want to be apart of them or would like our dance group to be apart of yours.

They all wore blue cotton pants, using white duct tape for the stripes. They wore white tops, using blue duct tape for the stripes. If you are not familiar with this routine ask any female that grew up in the 1970's for help. Also this web-site has a place were you can listen to the song: [Link](Mouse over link to see full location)
The Brady Bunch performed this song & dance on the episode were they called themselves "The Silver Platters" to try to win money to buy their parents an anniversary gift.
Good luck and have fun with whatever you choose. [ TJHGWest's advice column | Ask TJHGWest A Question ]
lp94fan1 answered Wednesday December 6 2006, 9:30 pm: Last year, some people at my school actually took plates, put them on a stick and started trying to balance them! It was so funny, and it cracked us all up! I guarantee you that if you do this everybody will laugh. Or you can get a male friends, dress him up in girl clothes, and maybe get him to cheerlead with you, and the cheerleading should be about pasta on armpits.

TheHeadHonchoPoncho57 answered Sunday January 29 2006, 3:39 pm: You guys could dance to the Numa Numa Song! That would be absolutely hilarious. People would love it. The song is actually called Dragostea Din Tei, and is sung bu the band Ozone, but is generally nicknamed "The Numa Numa Song" or "the Maya Hee Song." This guy made up this hilarious dance to it and is made famous throughout the world. To see it, go to Google and type in "Numa Numa Song" and "Gary Brolsma" [ TheHeadHonchoPoncho57's advice column | Ask TheHeadHonchoPoncho57 A Question ]
Turc answered Saturday January 28 2006, 11:15 pm: Last year, my friends and I all dressed up as different kinds of zombies and monsters, and one of them dressed up as Michael Jackson. We all learned the Thriller dance and performed it... we didn't really win anything, but it was a ton of fun and people still talk about it all the time. Also, the winners of the talent show at my college did the Spartan cheerleader skit from SNL. Look to things that people are familiar with and parodize them. Best of luck to you, I bet you will be memorable :) [ Turc's advice column | Ask Turc A Question ]
vilelove answered Saturday January 28 2006, 9:54 pm: What about both of you recite a poem? It's like you are having a conversation, talking to each other back and foward... except in poetic form. You can make it funny and even act it out a little or have silly props. Or you can make it sad (i.e. you both are orphans and the poem is about how crappy your life has been because of that) or whatever you want. Just a thought. Good luck.
