We’re all used to watching Blake Griffin destroy rims and backboards, jumping over and around anyone that gets in his way, ultimately embarrassing the hell out of them.  If you haven’t gotten a taste of Blake’s comedic side though, you might be pleasantly surprised because the dude is actually pretty funny.

To explore his thirst for laughs on a deeper level, Blake has started an internship with Will Ferrel’s brainchild with co-founder Adam McKay, Funny or Die.  The young Clippers superstar will act and assist with writing, shooting and editing several sketch comedy videos for the juggernaut website.  As a big fan of the site and devoted follower, Blake’s aim is to learn the ins and outs of filmmaking.  However, don’t expect him to receive any favoritism as an intern at the company.

President of Production for Funny Or Die, Mike Farah, insists that Blake will be treated just as all of the other interns are.

“We’re going to put him to work,” said Farah.  “He’s shooting a series of videos, and he’s also coming to meetings.  He’s basically doing everything that an intern does.”

The dunk master himself acknowledges some of Will Ferrel’s movies as his favorites, including “Old School” and “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.”

“I’ll go see a bad comedy over a good action movie any day,” said Griffin.

While we’ve heard of other NBA players considering playing basketball overseas during the current lockout, this is definitely a first.  You’ve really gotta hand it to Blake for using this time to explore his other interests and doing it the right way by interning just like everyone else.  He says he’ll even grab coffee for the people in charge!

“I don’t mind doing stuff like that.  It’s not a problem for me,” said Blake.

Let’s hope they don’t have him jumping over more cars too much.  He does have a season to play after all…well, hopefully.  To see some comedy work that the Clippers’ forward has done in the past, check out the video below of him working with Norm MacDonald!
