Ron Artest's Comedy Act

Hugs, Drugs and Hecklers

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.
