A delicious little sight gag that never ceases to get a laugh!
As a working professional, it's always important to find and utilize bits of business that work. They should be not only clever, but entertaining as well, and with Brownies (Brown E's) you have both!
During your show, you ask the kids, "Who wants a brownie?"
Of course, the kids enthusiastically respond with a resounding "I do. I do!", because everybody loves BROWNIES! Right?
Reaching into a bag the performer removes one of the brownies for all to see. It's a BROWN foam "Letter E" that he proceeds to hand out to some lucky child. "Here you go." The looks on the kids faces are PRICELESS as you hand them one of the Brown E's. Their awkward bewilderment is always exceedingly laugh-producing. Yes, apparently they've never gotten a "Brown E" before today.
Played completely serious or deadpan, Brownies (Brown E's) is a bit that's VERY funny and generally gets HUGE reactions from adults AND kids alike, so you're actually entertaining simultaneously on two levels. In fact, sometimes it seems like ADULTS enjoy this comedy bit more than the kids.
