Wedding Shtick Ideas
« on: July 29, 2013, 11:06:11 AM »
My sister is getting married soon and I want to come up with some kind of shtick to perform in front of her and her chosson at the dancing.

Does anyone have any good "wedding shtick" ideas?

(Some background details that may or may not be relevant: wedding is in Canada, I can juggle alright, I'm an ok dancer, athletic, willing to dress up in anything if necessary....)

Something personal

+1, my brother is a big Beatles fan. His friend brought the costumes they're wearing on the album cover of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and we danced with him in those. He absolutely loved it.

If you can't figure out anything personal, here's another one my friend likes to do. You get (at least) 2 people to tie a napkin around their faces like a bandanna, put on a black hat, sit backwards on a chair as if it's a horse and 'ride' around pretending to shoot at each other like cowboys.

ETA: just noticed that the thread is old and only showed up in 'new' because of the spam above my post.

When the chasson and kallah go to the yichud room, clear out the wedding hall and turn off the lights

Im guessing the above mentioned wedding has passed.
Fire hats is a great shtick. All you need is an old black hat or 2, rubbing alcohol, aluminum foil and matches.

Yes.
Tear out the hats lining, and line it with a few layers of the foil. A minute or 2 before poor a bunch of the alcohol on the top of the hat,  then ignite.
Looks best if u can get a group, or tie it in to a dance or another shtick, such as fire juggling.
