Liddell is the latest big-name UFC veteran to try his hand at stand-up comedy, but it’s not quite what it seems. Liddell had no intention of being a comedian. But he was persuaded to give it a go for a segment on the ‘Lights Out With David Spade’ show on Comedy Central.
Liddell was given an earpiece while at the Comedy Store, which enabled Spade and another comic, Whitney Cummings, to feed him lines and jokes to tell while he was up on stage. It sounds like a recipe for disaster, but Liddell was a good sport about it despite most of the jokes being at his expense. His delivery of the lines was surprisingly decent and got plenty of laughs from the crowd.
