Which Celebs Did Stand-Up Comedy?

Hugh Laurie 1 of 10

This actor is best known for his dramatic role as Gregory House on Fox's 'House,' but you had to expect that all of those quick-witted remarks had to come from somewhere, right? In 1981, Hugh was part of the Footlights theatre group during his time at Cambridge University, performing stand-up and sketches for live audiences. He may have ventured into more serious roles, but his comedic roots still peek through.
