You be the judge: how did the former Alaskan governor do as a comedienne-in-the-making?
Did Sarah Palin use The Tonight Show with Jay Leno as a new platform for a potential career as a comic? The former VP candidate not only chatted with the talk show host about her political ambitions March 2, but debuted a comedy routine as well!
When Jay, 59 asked Sarah what her future career plans are, now that she’s stepped down as governor of Alaska, the 46-year-old Fox News commentator poked fun at Jay’s time-slot switcheroo. “I hear once in a while this desk becomes open,” she joked, adding that she’s always wanted to try her hand at stand-up!
Apparently, Sarah decided to kick-start her career on Jay’s show, making wisecracks about everything from Los Angeleno’s penchant for plastic surgery with, “Here, when people have a frozen look on their face, its Botox!” to President Obama‘s health care plan. Naturally, the hardcore right-wing advocate also lit into the Democratic-led Congress and joked about moose meat.
Making the most of her allotted three minutes, Sarah also kidded that she’s signed a deal to become a Tina Fey impersonator in Las Vegas. You’ll remember Tina was devilishly good at mocking Sarah as Sarah on SNL during the 2008 Presidential campaign.
What did you think of Sarah’s ‘performance’ on Leno? Do you think she has a career as a comedienne?
