Description - Skits That Teach by Eddie James
I've watched the "Skit Guys" for more than 10 years; Eddie and Tommy are story tellers. They were telling stories before storytelling was all the rage. In their latest book, the "Skit Guys" let us peek inside their incredibly creative minds." -Allen Jackson, New Orleans Seminary "When it comes to skits, the "Skit Guys" have the corner market on the good stuff. They are engaging, thought provoking and hilarious without being cheesy or cliche. Their unique style is clean, clever, clear, and ...funny! You can't go wrong with these two." - Darren Whitehead, Director of Next Gen Ministries, Willow Creek Community Church "I've been in student ministry for over 30 years, and the "Skit Guys" are pretty much the greatest skit guys ever.

This book will aid you greatly in your continuous pursuit of excellence in the world of drama. In other words, buy this freaking book!" -Bob Johns, First Woodway, Waco, Texas (the guy that gave them their first gig) 35 Cheese-Free Skits.
