Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artest does stand-up comedy in a video. Posted by Ben Golliver.

Note: Please be advised this post included references to profanity. 

The NBA lockout is well into its second week, and the players have responded in many different ways: signing to play in Turkey, hosting summer camps and, of course, planking.

True to form, Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artest, who recently changed his name to Metta WorldPeace, did something different.  He took the stage at the Hollywood Improv to perform some stand-up comedy to kick off "Ron Artest's Ultimate Comedy Tour." 

The Los Angeles Times captured a portion of his act on video, which involved a question-and-answer format. WorldPeace was asked, "What did you learn from the brawl in Detroit?"

WorldPeace replied, "It seems like you want me to answer that one," he said with a smile. "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."

Artest, of course, was referencing the clothesline he gave to Dallas Mavericks guard J.J. Barea during Game 2 of the second round of the Western Conference playoffs, a foul that earned him a suspension for Game 3. The Mavericks, who went on to win the 2011 NBA title, went on to sweep the Lakers out in four games.

Here's a look at the video courtesy of YouTube user LosAngelesTimes.

He's definitly out, but there's something I like about Artest the last couple yrs. I don't what it is,  he is funnier when he's not tryin to be though.  The Bearra comment was funny but the rest of the standup ehh I don't think HBO will be running his own show any time soon.
