Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey wants to start his career in stand-up comedy. According to him, he was planning a comedy tour before the pandemic.

"I haven't shared this with many people but stand up is a no-filter communication," McConaughey said on The Russell Howard Hour. "As an actor, my raw expression goes through four filters before it gets to the screen. I'm doing someone else's script, I'm being directed by someone else, I'm being filmed by someone else, I'm being edited by someone else before it's put in a capsule and put in front of you on screen. That's four filters from my original expression. Where do you go where there is no filter? That's stand-up. So the plan before Covid was, I was planning on taking to the road and telling stories in an hour of stand-up."

McConaughey says he cannot wait to get started. "It sounds like a great thing to be addicted to, the ultimate buzz. You look today at stand-up comics, they are the best truth-tellers we have. If I can get away with this, then I'd love to."
