The Sneak Thief Skit

Materials:
2 suites, table, table cloth, newspaper, 2 coffee cups, watch, 2 bright colored boxer shorts

Characters:
2 men

Directions:
Two gentlemen dressed in business suits walk into a restaurant on their coffee break and sit at a table that is covered with a long table cloth. One has a newspaper under his arm. They both order coffee and one pulls out the paper and begins to read. He shares some of the stories briefly with his friend and then whistles in surprise:

Man 1: (with paper) Did you see this article about the Sneak Thief?
Man2: No, what happened?
Man1: Listen to this (reads aloud). "Another series of bizarre robberies occurred yesterday in . Purses, wallets and other items mysteriously disappeared. Police are baffled and have no clues as to the thief’s identity or how he or she strikes without being seen. The public is warned to be on their guard until the thief is apprehended.
Man 2: That’s unbelievable!

They continue to talk, the waitress brings the coffee, one man signs the check. They drink the coffee quickly. One man looks at his watch and says, "We’d better get back to the office." They both arise and walk out minus their pants and clad in bright colored boxer shorts. (The two should practice getting out of their pants so that the audience does not notice. The operation is hidden behind the tablecloth. If loafers are worn, shoes can easily be slipped off and on again.)
