Prince Harry Is a Stand-Up Comic Now

If the Duke of Sussex thing doesn't work out for Prince Harry, he can always rely on his comedic skills. According to People, during the 17th Annual Stand Up for Heroes Benefit on Monday, the ex-senior royal poked fun at himself with a brief comic routine.

I didn't really have to prepare much because I'm never scrutinised. But I've been working on this act for a long time. And everyone I know thinks it's wonderful. No, these aren't the types of folks that only tell me what I want to hear.

The event was presented by the Bob Woodruff Foundation and the New York Comedy Festival, which explains the opening zinger, but Harry focused on the seriousness of the occasion, stating how much he appreciates and celebrates military duty men and their families.

"It has incredible highs and painful lows," he concluded. "It is unique, and that is extremely important to society both during and after active service." Our community means more to us than you can imagine. And nights like this are proof of that.

I know our experiences and journeys to this point have been different, but we are always connected by what we've learned as humans, what we've endured as families, and how we've come out stronger because of our capacity to listen, understand, and support one another.

"With respect, understanding, and admiration, I salute each and every one of you, my brothers, sisters, and friends," he stated. "And please remember, if any of you feel lost or alone in the midst of all of this, don't underestimate the power of purpose and upholding the important values."
