Rapper Sean Combs made his first foray into stand-up comedy on Friday night (14Jan11) by appearing on stage with comic CHRIS GETHARD in New York.
The hip-hop mogul took the stage during Gethard's show at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Manhattan, after years of begging by the comedian who was desperate to land a guest appearance from his idol.
Combs revealed during the show that Gethard had bombarded him with messages on Twitter.com, joking to the crowd, "I didn't know how to take it. I didn't know if it was a sexual thing. I was like what the f**k is all this?"
During the set, Combs thanked his host by handing him a "care package" to take when he hits the road for a U.S. tour, with gifts including Tic Tacs mints, lip balm, vodka, cologne and a fake gun.
