Funny or Nah? Blake Griffin Tries Standup Comedy, Tells Joke About Strippers

Should the Clippers' forward stick to his day job?

Published August 4, 2016

So this could explain why Michael Jordan would want Blake Griffin to star in a possible Space Jam 2 movie.

On the same Wednesday that Jordan's comments became public, a video of the Los Angeles Clippers' five-time All-Star power forward doing a stand-up comedy routine surfaced on the internet.

According to TMZ Sports, the footage stems from the Just for Laughs event in Montreal last week.

Early into his act, Griffin attempted to show those in attendance how it is as an NBA player doing an interview immediately following a game.

Later on in his act, he told a story about going to a strip club for the first time in his life during his rookie season back in 2009. 

Adding to the hilarity of the memory was that he and some of his teammates attended a strip joint in New York City the night before Thanksgiving Day.

"We walk in and all of the strippers — I kid you not — are sitting down watching SportsCenter and eating a beautiful family-style buffet Thanksgiving dinner," Griffin says to laughs on stage. "And they don't say a word. They just get up and walk straight to the back to glitter up or whatever."

And peep the explosive way he ends the bit.

HA! Not bad. We're not saying he should give up his day job, but not bad.

If he works on his act, perhaps Blake could take his comedy further.

What do you think, though? Funny or nah?
