Funny Guy

Clay gave his fans a nice surprise during his Christmas tour---lots of banter. We already knew that he was funny, but I don't think we knew quite how funny and quick-witted he is (nor quite so bawdy). It was like a whole new talent was revealed during the tour. Clay played off his audience extremely well. Here is a sampling of the funny from our singing comedian.

  • You messed up her hairdo (after an audience member grabbed someone in front of her by the head)
  • You can all say you slept with Clay Aiken (after he suggested the audience go to sleep because he was tired)
  • Unfortunately, I'm not, I'm not (comeback to a guess of "scoring on the tour" for the word of the day Scordatura)
  • Elmer, I would be careful about wearing so much white, if I were you
  • Git er done
  • playing with wood (word of the day reference)
  • your stealin' mah show!! (to someone on the other end of a cellcert)
  • And how old is Frankie (Clay looking for a hookup after learning Frankie is from Raleigh.)
  • Frankie, I'm going to have to let you go (talking to cellcerter on the phone )

  • I figure as long as I get the words, Jesus, Christmas, and snowbells in there somewhere you'll get it. (making fun of his forgetting the lyrics to his songs)
  • Please welcome the executive producer of one of the worst albums of 2006 (introducing Jaymes Foster and making fun of being on the EW list)
  • you're pissed off about that, aren't you?
  • You go ahead and play whatever you want sir. If I know the words, I'll sing along.
  • Gentleman, the fact that you're here is good and it'll help when you get home .

  • You're stealing my show.

I would like to thank you so much for these amazing videos, especially all the work you put into the first one. I'm from Canada and i live alone in a seniors building and will never get to see Clay in person, he is SO amazing and talented. You've made my whole week at least, thanks again.
