INT: a narcoleptic clown couple are entertaining an audience either LIVE or on TV, but keep falling asleep. The audience thinks it is part of the show.
Man Clown: (in mock surprise) Oh dear me Millie, I do believe I might just falls asleep standing on my feet, I’m so exhausted. (the Clown man nods off, while standing)
Woman Clown: (honks a bike horn in his ear then hides it behind her back and winks at the audience)
Man Clown: (startled awake and flails arms and legs and looks around startled) Who’s there!? Who did that?!
Woman Clown: (shrugs innocently)
Man Clown: Mille dear it has been such a long day (yawns and his legs buckles and he collapses, asleep and snoring on the floor.)
Woman clown: (Shakes her head and sighs. She grabs a glass of water and tosses it on him.)
Man clown: (jumps up, startled and looking around) What happened, who did that?! Why am I wet?
Woman clown: (shrugs innocently)
Man clown: (looking around) Someone’s playing tricks on me Millie, or I am losing my mind.
Woman clown: (rubs him gently on the back to comfort him)
Man Clown: Starts getting drowsy and collapses again.
Woman clown: (pulls out a toy gun and yells in his ear) Bang, Bang. Bang Bang Bang!
The woman clown then collapses asleep in the mans lap.
Man Clown: (wakes up, distraught to find Millie lying in his lap with a gun)
Man Clown: (sobbing and holding her head in his lap) Millie, oh Millie! My dear sweet Millie! What has happened!?
Woman Clown: (pops her head up and gives a big exaggerated smile to the audience.)
Man Clown: (Falls back again)
Woman Clown: (shakes her head again and sighs, then drags him out of the picture or off stage…)
Edit: I almost feel like this could have no speaking lines. Just sounds and actions like a silent film. Maybe Charlie Chaplin style.
