Long Road to Comedy Gold

Toronto’s favourite YouTube personality is at it again. Over the past year, Raptors star Chris Bosh has campaigned for all-star votes as a self-promoting used-car salesman, he’s started his own YouTube channel, and he’s been Jay Leno’s correspondent at the NBA Finals. Now that he’s a US Olympian, CB4 is still finding time to flex his comedy muscles as a reporter for AOL Fanhouse.
In his first video segment, released last weekend, Bosh’s long road to the Olympic games includes overcoming the adversity of getting shown up in the weight room by a teenaged girl and a de-inspirational speech à la Rocky. Its key line is: “Why don’t you just give up, kid? It’s over.” Then he gives an inside look at his training regime of one-armed chin-ups, one-armed bench presses, and his dogged determination at the track.
Like a lot of other Olympians, Bosh has also been updating his blog from Beijing. So there’s something to kill the time until his next video update appears on AOL Fanhouse as promised.
