After getting fired from “Scandal” for his violent behavior, Columbus Short is trying out a new career in stand-up comedy.
In an on-the-street interview with TMZ this week, the actor-turned-wannabe comic said he’s starting from the bottom. “I’m doing stand-up,” he shared outside of Flappers Comedy Club in Burbank. “Started from the bottom, now we’re here…back at the bottom!”
The funny guy went on to share a few jokes with the cameraguy. When asked how ABC let him go, he said, “They sent me a SnapChat — a quick message.”
“It was real fast. It came quick. I almost missed the message it went away so fast,” he joked. “It was like Back 2 The Future part two when they sent him a fax ‘Ehhh, you’re fired!’”
As far as making future appearances on “Scandal,” the Hollywood bad boy said, “Not after this interview.”
As we reported earlier, Short is in the midst of a messy divorce battle with is estranged wife Tanee McCall. She filed a restraining order against her husband of nearly nine years after he allegedly came home drunk, put a knife to her throat and threatened to end both of their lives. In April, she filed divorce papers for the third time and requested full legal and physical custody of their 2-year-old daughter Ayala.
