5th graders take the stage in baby clothes for hilarious talent show act

June 16th, 2021

You don’t have to be a professional comedian to get an entire room laughing. In fact, you don’t even have to be an adult to pull off this task!

There are some really talented kids in this world who are just as funny and entertaining as individuals 3 times their age. Luckily, there are places like school talent shows where they can show off their impressive skills.

School talent shows consist of a variety of acts. Let’s face it though – not all of them win over the audience.

How many shaky-voiced covers of Adele can one stand before losing one’s mind?

They certainly make for memories, but not always do they rate high on quality of entertainment.

But just wait for the treat you are about to get below!

Thankfully though, there are two students who have enough talent to go around!

Two clever tweens performed a laugh-out-loud skit for their school’s talent show.

Part dance, part puppet-show, part clowning, they use baby onesies with strings attaching the feet to their elbows.

This allows them to dance with their comparatively (and hilariously) long arms, and the feet move along with their broader gestures.

The result: Hilarity.

Their performance begins with a classic song for physical humour: “Kung Fu Fighting” by Carl Douglas.

They provide the expected karate chop moves which begins the audience’s journey to laughter town.

When they begin Pharrell’s “Happy” the silliness is just too much for the chuckling crowd.

Of course it wouldn’t be a humorous dance performance if they didn’t throw in a little of Psy’s “Gangnam Style” for good measure!

All the moves of Gangnam are there, and made even more funny by the ridiculous puppet costumes.

The resulting illusion is to make the students seem almost monkey-like.

And nothing says effective like a giggling, approving crowd.

So, did these students win over the audience with their creative and hilarious performance?

You bet! And as most performers know, that is the first challenge on stage.

And in the same vein, you can’t perform a dance routine without throwing in a little Queen B!

What are you going to do, NOT dance to Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”?

As with their Gangnam segment, they know all the moves, although let’s just say their hilarious staging and costumes have certain… limitations.

Regardless, seeing this version of the iconic dance routine is unbeatable in humor.

Just when it couldn’t get any better, they throw on some sunglasses for yet another song.

It was Soulja Boy I Told Ya! They crank out all the best moves for Soulja Boy’s “Tell’em”. You know the one:

YYYOOOOOUUUUUUU!

Yeah, that’s the one. Which other song would it be?

These kids have the uncanny ability to chose the funniest songs to dance to.

They even get the chance to take a leaf out of Jay-Z’s book and get that dirt off their shoulders!

And when the big YOOOUUUU comes in Soulja Boy’s song, the versatility of their amazing prop/costume/puppets really comes into play.

Swinging their whole “bodies”, to the side, really showcasing the full scope of possibilities for such a fun performance idea.

Who knew Soulja Boy’s hit would have drawn so many laughs?

Emily Sideris loved it! She says,

“This I the cutest thing ever !! Way to go kids 👏🙌🔥”

It’s obvious these youngsters are meant for the comedy stage.

They seem to be able to speak the language of comedy fluently, and it’s clear that they have enough talent to carry them from a fifth-grade talent show, to wherever they wish to fly in the world of performance.

Stay tuned for these two, I suspect they’re destined for great things.

I mean to be able to sit down and come up with this creative act?

They have the minds for it.

Says a viewer.

“Those smiles are priceless. You can tell that they were really having fun during this performance. Nothing says fun like a huge grin while pulling off an entertaining act. In fact, they were so good, so many others began to copy their act!”
