"Funny People" star Jonah Hill on standup
The short, round one from “Superbad” and “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” says he’s not cut out for standup.
I never done stand-up comedy before… When they recognize you from a movie or something you get a free five minutes when they’re excited to see you. And then after that if you suck, you just suck, which I did. I would go with Seth a lot, who was really good because he did stand up a lot when he was younger. And I don’t think anything gives Seth Rogen more joy in the entire world – not the idea of love, or birds in the sky, or eternal happiness– more than him watching me tank on stage. He was the only laugh in the room at the time.
The two hit the stages of comedy clubs to prepare for their roles in “Funny People.”
