Actress and animal activist Pamela Anderson is now trying her hand at
comedy and her act includes material that pokes fun at her many gay
The star is doing stand-up this week at Montreal's Just for Laughs festival. On Thursday, Anderson cracked, "Out in Calgary they are having a rodeo festival -- the Stampede -- where grown men actually tie a strap around a struggling animal's crotch and then climb onto his back and see if they can last eight seconds until they're thrown off. It's not just cruel -- it's freaky. I was going to say it's really gay, but I spend a lot of time in West Hollywood, and the most hardcore gays I know don't even do that to each other. And when they ride, it lasts for a lot longer than eight seconds."
Anderson took a few shots at herself: "I know gay pride was here in Montreal last week. Woo-hoo! It's so nice that Canadian gays can get married. In California, it's not allowed, which is a bummer. Although I've got to say that after my last few husbands, my mom is begging me to be gay."
Anderson, a supporter of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, concluded the show, which will air on national television this fall, by taking the stage in a seal costume and saying, "Before I leave, I wanted to change into my clubbing outfit."
