It has been reported that Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney has developed quite a hobby for stand-up comedy. It is claimed that Wayne often attends comedy nights, where he takes to the stage to perform his routine.
An insider explained, "Wayne's a regular at comedy nights in Liverpool and Manchester. He's always been a funny guy and has said before he'd love to be a comedian. We've all been going on at him so he's vowed to us and the rest of his friends that he will get up on stage next time he's out."
The insider added, “The only problem with Wayne getting up to tell a few jokes is his nerves. You wouldn't think it, but he does get nervous. He hates getting up to talk in front of crowds, let alone tell jokes. But he's got some good material - some of it pretty controversial."
Wayne Rooney was part of the Manchester United team that beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 5-0 at Molineux yesterday, to take the Old Trafford club four points clear at the top of the English Premier League.
