This sounds about right.

I will give Metta credit after the Brawl at the Palace it could have went all downhill for him, but he has put together a colorful profitable career since then.

He also has “ring protection” because he bailed out Kobe Bryant and the Lakers in Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals.  Legacies are cemented in the playoffs, so Metta is forever golden now. has the details.

Ron is actually hosting the tour and doing introductions for the three ACTUAL comedians on the tour but he does have a no-holds-barred Q & A session. Some of the questions asked:

Question: Can you teach a white dude to dunk?

Artest: “I can’t dunk anymore. I missed a layup in the playoffs.”

Question: What did you learn from the brawl in Detroit?

Artest: “I didn’t learn s***. I just smacked [J.J.] Barea and f****** got suspended. That’s why I changed my name to Metta. Next year, there will be peace.”

I can dig it, sounds interesting if anything.

If you catch the Metta World Peace comedy show report back to us and let us know know how it was.
