Hopping, Any ID? Meter Reader
This is a short sketch for two performers that works well on stage.
‘CAN I COME IN?’ SKETCH EXCERPT
WILL IS STANDING ON A DOORSTEP WEARING A LONG WOOLLY HAT THAT TRAILS DOWN HIS BACK.
HE IS HOPPING.
HE KNOCKS ON THE DOOR. WENDY OPENS THE DOOR…
Let me in.
Let me in. I’m a sperm and it’s my job.
Have you got any ID?
I’m a sperm not a Meter Reader. Let me in.
- END OF EXCERPT -
This sketch was inspired by the Peter Cook’s, ‘One Leg Too Few.’ I loved the hopping of Dudley Moore. The first line that came into my head was ‘I’m a sperm let me in.’ It’s been through many rewrites and shortened drastically. I used it as a scene in a play I performed at the Hen & Chickens theatre in Islington called ‘DreamDuel.’
