Former Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter, who just a few years ago won a personal battle with cancer, was seen performing stand-up comedy at an open mic night in Philadelphia’s Helium comedy club. Specter, who is 81, was on stage for roughly eight minutes and had the audience rolling.
“That’s probably the biggest applause I’ll get tonight,” joked Specter as he was introduced on stage.
“I’ve been in comedy now for thirty years,” said Specter, who worked in congress for three decades. “The only difference is it’s not stand-up. We all have comfortable chairs. It costs about $27 million to win a seat in the U.S. Senate so when you win one you like to sit down.”
Specter, who was a Republican for many years before recently becoming a Democrat, seemed very comfortable on stage making fun of D.C. politicians. Specter went on to tell some hilarious anecdotes about former President Bill Clinton and Viagra, as well as former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell.
