Olive the Other Reindeer Skit
A Favorite Skit
Announcer: (very enthusiastically)
Good evening everyone! Tonight, one lucky member of our audience will win $10,000 - if he correctly answers our skill question!
(Scans the audience and picks out the planted helper)
You, sir, would you like a chance at this great prize?
Helper: You bet!
(Leaves the audience and joins the announcer on the stage)
Announcer: Today's question is: "Name two of Santa's reindeer!" You have 5 seconds to think about it. No help from the audience, please.
(Make buzzer sound)
Time's up! Now, give me one of the two reindeer names.
Helper: Oh, I know - Rudolph!
Announcer: (jumping with joy) Yes! That's absolutely correct! Just one more name and you've won $10,000!
Now, for $10,000 what is your second reindeer's name?
Helper: (Thinks and scratches his head)
Hmmm, now how does that song go? Let's see ...
Ah, I've got it!
Announcer: What? Olive! Whoever heard of a reindeer named Olive?
Helper: They sing about her in the song about Rudolph. They sing "Olive, the other reindeer, used to laugh and call him names!"
