One of Will Smith’s goals on his bucket list was to perform stand-up comedy and it looks that he finally has made that happen. The 49-year-old star joined Dave Chappelle, Katt Williams, LeBron James, Donnell Rawlings, Michelle Wolf, and others at Los Angeles’s ‘Peppermint Club’ last night and gave fans a night to remember. According to Variety, Smith wanted to get his stand-up goal out the way for his upcoming 50th birthday.
As for Smith? He explained to the crowd that his 50th birthday was coming up and doing standup was on his “bucket list” and that he was filming the experience for a show called “The Bucket List” (next week, he bungie jumps from a helicopter over the Grand Canyon). His repertoire revolved mostly around life at home with the family. “I kind of lost control of my house,” joked Smith, noting that his wife’s “Red Table Talk” show on Facebook Watch has turned the garage into a control booth (a bewildered Smith made light of how his ex-wife Sheree got booked for the first episode).
Fans who would witness the whole thing immediately took to Twitter to share their reaction of seeing Smith’s stand-up comedy debut. See what they had to say, below.
