A person has died and is standing before St. Peter at the Pearly Gates. (Play some light Gospel music in the back ground.)
Large Book of Life, White Robe, Cross, Sign: Heaven, Music, Bell
Arrival: New arrival steps onto the stage staggering, wondering where they are. “Where am I?”
St. Pete: Your almost to Heaven. Here’s how it works. You need 100 points to make in into heaven. You tell me all the good things you’ve done, and I give you a certain number of points for each item depending on how good it was. When you reach 100 points, you get in.
Arrival: Okay, I was married to the same woman for 51 years and never cheated on her, not even in my heart.
St. Pete: That is wonderful. That is worth three points!
Arrival: Three points!? Well I attended church all my life and supported it’s ministry with my tithes and service.
St. Pete: Terriﬁc! That is certainly worth a point.
Arrival: One Point !?!?!? I started a soup kitchen in my city and worked in a shelter for homeless veterans.
St. Pete: Fantastic! This is good for two more points.
Arrival: Two Points!?!?!? At this rate the only way I’ll get into heaven is by the grace of God!
St. Pete: BINGO! (Ring Bell) 100 Points! Come on in!
St. Pete and Arrival, turn and walk off stage.
Phil Reigelsperger & I presented this skit in competition at the 2007 Southeast Clown Convention. It took first place. The idea was shared with me by a fellow clown and friend Jack Wilda.
