Matthew McConaughey wants to start his career in standup comedy.“Standup is an no filter communication. What I do as an actor, which is why I’m interested in doing stand-up, is my raw expression goes through four filters before it gets to the screen,” Matthew said on ‘The Russell Howard Hour’, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I’m doing someone else’s script, directed, filmed and edited by someone else before it’s put in a capsule and put in front of you on screen. That’s four filters from my original expression. Where do you go where there is no filter? That’s stand-up. So before Covid I was planning on taking to the road and telling stories in an hour of stand-up,” he added. Matthew said: “It sounds like a great thing to be addicted to, the ultimate buzz. You look today at stand- up comics, they are the best truth-tellers we have. If I can get away with this, then I’d love to.”
