After Madonna admitted she was a closet comedian to Jimmy Fallon, he decided to give her a chance to workshop her material on The Tonight Show.
And it went about as well as you can imagine. She started with a casual joke about paedophilia – as you do – that went down like a lead balloon, then eased into some material about her artwork that she has. By this point, I think the crowd were laughing out of sympathy.
But fair play to her for trying, not a lot of A-listers would give stand up a shot, and after this, I don’t think any of them will. Ever.
