Drop the mic! That’s exactly what Bryan Cranston did after he cracked a ‘your mother’ joke at the expense of one red-faced fan during a Q&A session at Comic-Con. Watch the funny video right here!
It was a put-down worthy of his Breaking Bad alter ego, Walter White. Bryan Cranston, 59, showed off his razor-sharp sense of humor during a panel for Nerd HQ’s Conversations for a Cause at Comic-Con in San Diego on July 9. His incredible burn is one you’ll remember forever.
When the actor was asked by one eager fan, who grew up where the hit AMC show was set in Albuquerque, what Bryan thought of his hometown and if he liked filming there, the star came up with a frank retort. “I’d go and visit your mother once in a while,” he quipped as the audience roared with laughter.
As the conversation continued, Bryan then, literally, dropped the mic to a standing ovation. He smiled gleefully, clearly pleased with his own comment. It was the sort of belittling phrase Walter would’ve said to Jesse Pinkman!
Bryan was actually at Comic-Con to promote his new Crackle series, SuperMansion, which is an animated comedy series focusing on an aging superhero who has to lead a team of equally decrepit superheroes in a fight against crime. Sounds promising! And we’re sure Bryan’s quick wit will shine through.
Bryan has made a habit of not taking himself too seriously, and he recently shocked fans at the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas on June 21 by showing up to the event as Walter White!
Bryan stunned onlookers by jumping up on the podium alongside EDM group Above & Beyond. In front of thousands of fans, he said the iconic character’s most famous phrase. “Say my name,” he roared, much to the delight of the crowd.
