Like he’s done countless times before, Brad Paisley walked out on stage Thursday night to wild cheers. He grabbed the microphone off its stand. The crowd hushed with anticipation. And then, Paisley turned on his heels and walked right back off stage.
What was this – some kind of joke? Absolutely.
As the emcee for a night of stand-up comedy, Paisley, 42, clearly was not taking his job seriously, starting with this opening gag.
But where’d he go? It seems the man who needs no introduction decided to introduce himself.
