Is Mike Tyson actually turning into a comedian? First there was his roast appearance and now this: He’s been cast as Herman Cain in Funny or Die’s new election season parody series “Live Funny or Die." The series launched last week with a video featuring most of the candidates—including Darrell Hammond as Rick Perry and infamous Obama impersonator Reggie Brown as the president, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
But it’s this video, a full blast of Tyson, that’s got us in stitches. In a perfect marriage of actor and material, Tyson’s Cain explains his rise in the polls thusly: “The Tea Party loves crazy more than they hate black.” He then lays out campaign promises like “I’m gonna wear a flag pin the size of a fat baby’s head and show off the cool handshake Jesus and I have been working on,” pausing occasionally to randomly shout “Cain!” It must be seen to be believed.
