Ron Artest's Comedy Act

Hugs, Drugs and Hecklers

7/19/2011 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He joked about pulling an "R. Kelly" on a fan ... his crush on Celine Dion ... and that he must have been "on crack" when he changed his name ... and that's why Ron Artest's comedy show was magical. 071911_ron_artest_v2_still



Mr. Metta World Peace hit the stage at Caroline's on Broadway in NY for his 2nd ever live comedy show ... and TMZ was there to capture the new king of stand up in all of his glory -- even the part where he stopped the show in the middle of his set to hug a woman he recognized.

Awesome.

Look for Ron to have a guest appearance on Sheen's new show.
These two were cut from the same cloth.

Artest is a dirt bag sore loser Laker. Did you see the way him & the Lakers acted at the end of the season when the spoiled baby's lost games?

I hope that all of you jerks making jokes feel good about yourselves. The car in which Lamar was traveling propelled the motorcycle into a 15 year old boy. He died as a result of severe head trauma. My condolences to the family. I'm sure Lamar feels horrible, even though it wasn't his fault. Lamar, unfortunately, knows what the parents are going through, as he lost a son too a few years ago.
