Michael Jordan's choice for Space Jam 2, Blake Griffin, performed a stand-up routine at the Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal. And frankly he did a pretty damn good job, even if it's probably not the type of audition Warner Bros. would have in mind.
You can watch his whole 10-minute set above.
Though it was recorded on July 26, it wasn't posted on to YouTube until yesterday, August 3. So though it's not technically new, you couldn't have seen it unless you were actually in the crowd that night.
Also, believe it or not, this is actually not Griffin's first foray into the world of stand-up, having previously performed some type of spoken word poetry at Los Angeles's Laugh Factory back in 2014. As you can see (if you have the time to click the link and watch both videos) he's been working on his game over the past few years.
In his newest act he riffs on the rigors of what he knows, being a pro athlete. From there he breaks down the basics including the stupidity of postgame interviews (with a volunteer from the crowd), getting traded and, of course, strip clubs.
Come to think of it he does seem like the perfect hire for Space Jam 2. If just so we could see some of our favorite childhood cartoon characters grow up and deal with some of these issues he's talking about in his set. After all, Bugs, Daffy, Porky, Marvin the Martian, and--uh--whoever else is in Looney Tunes banging strippers seems like the logical next step for the sequel.
