Once in an outdoor drama, everyone, both audience and cast, froze and held their breath as a skunk walked across the stage.  Fortunately he didn't smell up anything.  As soon as he was out of sight, action resumed.

An actor was to enter and run some bad guys off stage by shooting his gun in the air.  The actor entered and tried to fire.  Nothing happened.  He looked in the barrel and tried to fire.  Nothing happened.  He shook the gun and tried to fire.  Nothing happened.  The other actors left the stage in hysterics.  The actor looked at the gun and said, "I'm coming back.  And next time I'm bringing a gun with bullets!"  The audience, of course, cracked up.  Unfortunately it was a drama not a comedy.

I danced onstage in a kickline and my two year old daughter screamed, "Hi Mama!"  The audience laughed and applauded.

Someone concerned about an accompanist with nerves, gave him a valium before opening.  He played the show fine then after the final curtain, he stood to take a bow.  He fell into the orchestra pit fast asleep.  The audience stood to see what happened to him.  He calls it his first standing ovation.
