Eddie Vedder Tries Out Standup Comedy


Eddie Vedder recently performed at the Concert Across America to End Gun Violence Show, and told his first ever stand up comedy joke!

“Another story I read about in the paper… about a woman in New York who was going to divorce her husband after 20 years because he played too much Scrabble. It’s all he did, wasn’t working anymore, he played on his computer with strangers, anonymous people, on his phone, in the car.

So she finally says ‘I’m leaving you,’ and he’s kinda caught unaware and she goes ‘the Scrabble, you’re obsessed.’ And he says ‘Obsessed? (holds up finger) That’s an 85 point word.’ (laughter) That’s the first time I’ve ever tried to tell a joke on stage in 25 years.”
