Keanu Reeves goes back to his comedy roots, performing Kid Stand-Up with Jimmy Fallon and Judd Apatow.
Reeves, 52, dazzled fans on The Tonight Show with a stand-up act that — unsurprisingly — sounds like it was written by a five-year-old. The actor flailed his arms around while delivering such zingers as “How many tickles does it take to make an octopus laugh? Ten-tickles (tentacles).”
And how could you not laugh at “Why can’t you hear a pterodactyl go to the bathroom? Come on, man, because it’s pee is silent!”
Popular writer and director Judd Apatow’s turn on-stage garnered just as many chuckles, warming up the live audience with a knock-knock joke. “Knock Knock,” Apatow said, to which the crowd responded, “Who’s there?” “Abraham Lincoln,” he replied. “Abraham Lincoln who?”
And right then and there, The 40-Year-Old Virgin director delivered a punchline for the ages: “What, you don’t know who the president is?”
Canadian-American actor Reeves has had his hands full with the upcoming release of John Wick: Chapter 2, which shoots its way into theatres on Feb. 10.
