– Clint Black debuted as a stand up comic last night on the new CBS-Television show "Secret Talents of the Stars" and did well enough to advance to the next round. Black wrote and performed two minutes worth of comedy. The next show airs live on April 22.
"I'm used to performing in front of an audience, but as I have said before, it's a whole different thing once the guitar is removed from the mix," Black said. "Now, I've got to get busy coming up with some new material. I don't know how these professional comedians do it."
Each week, celebrities will compete in a tournament-structured format to determine who has the best unknown talent. Each performance will be critiqued by the celebrity judges, but viewers have the vote.
Black appeared alongside celebrities Sasha Cohen (Olympic ice skating medalist), who demonstrated her ability as a contortionist and who will also be headed for the next round of competition; Mya (singer/actress), who did a tap-dancing routine and George Takei (actor), who showed off his vocal chops as a country singer.
