Will Smith is one of the most beloved actors of our generation. From his early days on the iconic sitcom Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to slinging guns in Wild Wild West to giving unsolicited dating advice in Hitch, it’s safe to say Will is a master in all things entertainment.

Will’s latest film is Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin, where he plays the role of Genie, who was originally voiced by the late Robin Williams in the animated version of the film. The trailer for the live-action remake just dropped this week, and although we’ve seen glimpses of what we can expect from the movie, nothing really prepared us for the greatness that is Genie Will Smith.

Sure, we all love the many multifaceted characters Will Smith has played over the years, but do you think you could love Will Smith as Will Smith: The Stand-up Comedian?

The 50-year-old father of two recently filmed an episode for his Facebook Watch show, Bucket List, where he tries to do just that! It may come as a shock that Will hasn’t done stand-up comedy before, seeing as his comedic roles are second to none, but hey, there’s a first time for everything, right? That’s kind of the point of the show, no?

To see Will’s first-ever attempt at stand-up, check out the clip below.
