From Sports Illustrated:
“I get most of my jokes in the bathroom. I go to the bathroom and come up with some silly stuff, some good stuff, and then I go get my pen and pad and my recorder, just to see how I’m going to do it. I’m not doing the whole set, but I’m trying to figure out which joke I’m going to say and how I’m going to say it. So I practice it, and then I go out there and do it.”
Ron Artest’s Yellow Collar Comedy Tour continued at Caroline’s in Manhattan on Monday, and you sort of owe it to yourself to watch the video. Okay, maybe not to watch it, but you should press play and let it play for a while in the background until you tab back over to it, say “what the hell” to yourself and close it. I like to think of this stand-up comedy experiment like that episode of The Fresh Prince where D.L. Hughley shows up and Will just assumes anybody funny can do stand-up. The only difference is that the Fresh Prince ends after 22 minutes.
