Blake Griffin Demonstrates Why Post-Game Interviews Make Athletes Sound Stupid - Watch Here!

Blake Griffin appeared on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night (July 17) and opened up about trying out stand up comedy.

The 30-year-old Detroit Pistons star will be performing at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal next week.

“I kind of like stumbled into it. I was gonna go to the Just For Laughs in Montreal, this was like four years ago I think,” Blake said, revealing that he was offered the opportunity to MC a late-night set. “I had to go write 10 minutes… and it worked out.”

Blake Griffin also explained that post-game interviews make athletes sound dumb because they just exercised for two hours and don’t have enough oxygen in their brains.

“After the game you have to do media and you have to sit at a press conference and answer questions,” Blake explained. “I think people always think athletes are like really stupid and it’s not that we’re stupid it’s that we’ve just exercised for two hours and there’s not really enough oxygen in our brains.”

To demonstrate, Blake had Jimmy Fallon run in place for 15 seconds (complete with commentary from Blake) and then shoved a microphone into his face.
