The Ron Artest Comedy Tour… that’s not a joke.


Is there anything as funny as Ron Artest?

You had better laugh or he is coming into the crowd.

No, I’m serious. Well, he’s serious about being funny. Apparently.

Artest is getting into the comedy business, according to our man Arash Markazi ESPNLosAngeles.

If there is a lockout, however, Artest is working on a second career as a comedian. This summer, Artest will host the “Ron Artest Ultimate Comedy Tour,” which currently has four shows booked at the Improv in Hollywood July 8-9 and four more shows at Caroline’s on Broadway in New York July 15-16.

Artest has a pretty good sense of humor. But really… I’ve got nothing I can add to that. Except buy your tickets early.
