Sumo Wrestlers Skit

Materials:
2 diapers, microphone

Characters:
Yamahaha, Korimoto-ho, announcer

Directions:
For this skit you’ll need two guys, preferably of a muscular or flabby physique, dressed in diapers (use a white sheet for the uniforms). You will also need an announcer with a good voice and something he or she can use as a microphone, such as a vacuum hose.

Have the 2 wrestlers come stomping into the room, circling each other and snorting at each other with deep voices. The announcer introduces the first man a Yamahaha, who then steps forward, bows with folded hands and slowly laughs with a deep voice and a Japanese accent, "ha ha ha ha ha." He then throws rice over each shoulder. This procedure is repeated when the announcer introduces Korimoto-ho, who then responds with a "ho ho ho".

After their introduction, the two wrestlers begin fighting. They never touch each other or speak, except the occasional "ha ha’s" and "ho ho’s". The fight is conducted by each fighter doing to himself what he really wants to do to his opponent. The opponent responds — at the same time — by reacting to the hold or punch as if it really happened to him.

While this is going on, the announcer calls the play-by-play, describing finger bends, nostril lifts, toe stomps, navel jabs, and armpit hair pulls. With some good actors this event can be hilarious.
