Cut to theÂ Palladium in Carmel, Indiana.
A beautiful 1,300 theater that has seen some major names come though it’s doors.
Bob Kevoian, the co-host of â€œThe Bob & Tom Show,â€ comes onto the stage and introduces tonight’s performer.
â€œYouâ€™re about to see how a swimming punter from Pittsburgh became the funniest man in professional sports,â€ Kevoian said.
Ladies and Gentleman… Pat McAfee?
That’s right, Colts All-Pro punter Pat McAfee is here tonight taking part in his first comedy special.
His first words? Â “I can’t believe you’re (f’ing) here.”
Right off the bat,Â McAfee names three stars who have performed here: Willie Nelson. Peter Frampton. Bill Cosby. He takes a breath, lifts an eyebrow.
“OK, Willie Nelson: hall of fame,” McAfee says. “Peter Frampton: hall of fame.
“Bill Cosby: deep (expletive). Well, I can do better than one of those. Let’s do it.”
And you know what? Â He might have a case. Â McAfee was genuinely funny in his debut. Â Check out some of Pat’s comedyÂ below.
