Lupita Nyong'o tells raunchy jokes on Billy on the Street

Posted on

TRU TV

If you think there’s nothing Lupita Nyong’o can’t do, think again.

Though the incredibly talented Nyong’o is a force to reckon with on the big screen, it seems her comedic chops are lukewarm, to say the least.

In this clip from Billy on the Street, Nyong’o joins Billy Eichner for a raunchy round of “Lupita Nyong’o: Bring the Pain,” a street game show like only Eichner can produce. For this go-round, Nyong’o wants to branch out into a half-hour comedy special, but in order to do so, must first test the waters by performing bits from other famous comedians and seeing how she fares.

To kick things off, Nyong’o recites Bob Saget’s infamous “Don’t F— a Goat” rant, though the lewd bit can only muster a tepid “sure” when Eichner asks a passerby if she’d watch Nyong’o’s comedy special.

One man is even more blunt in his response, and tells Nyong’o straight up that her Andrew Dice Clay three blind mice joke is “not funny.”

Watch the clip above to hear Lupita tell more jokes, don’t say we didn’t warn you about her NSFW language, and be sure to catch the grumpy man who declares he “doesn’t give a s—” about her Oscar-winning turn in 12 Years a Slave.

Billy on the Street airs Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. on truTV.
