Game description

In this pantomime a piece of thread is pretended to be thread onto a needle (grimace on the face, complete concentration, exact target...). Then the audience is shown what can be done with a needle and thread. First of all, the needle is pushed into one ear and pulled out of the other. The thread should be pulled to the right, to the left and to the right again. The thread can then be pulled through the nostrils, into one and out through the other. The thread should be pulled to the left and right for pantomime effect. Encourage the audience to clap and cheer. To conclude, the needle is pulled through the mouth and through the body (swallow and wiggle uncomfortably) and pulled out through the bottom. Now pull the needle and thread in one direction then the other. (If someone can master this pantomime, they will surely receive a lot of laughs).


A suitable hair from an audience member can be used as the thread. After several attempts, a good hair is found which suits the quality standards required. The hair is pulled long, wrapped around the finder and then pulled through the body parts described above.
