Stand Up Comedy Clip


Kevin Nealon bends the imagination and cracks up the audience with his unconventional perspective on his new electric car, taking risks in life, and facing his fear of chimpanzees. To clarify, he’s not afraid of “cute little chimpanzees,” but rather the larger ones that have the strength of “four grown men,” though Nealon does raise legitimate concern about how that number was calculated.

“They must have done a study at one point,” he ponders before going on to comically narrate a scenario in which scientists usher various quantities of men into a cage with a chimpanzee for the purpose of seeing how many are needed to take down the chimpanzee. “It cost six lives that study, but it was worth it,” Nealon remarks. “At least they got their answer. It’s four.”
