Trisha Yearwood is a woman of many talents. She’s a Grammy-winning country singer, an actress, a cookbook author, and a cooking show host. But did you have any idea that she’s also a comedian?
Alright, comedic work isn’t technically a part of Yearwood’s impressive resume, but she does have a top-notch sense of humor. She’s made us laugh in interviews, and especially during her cooking show, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen. Let’s not even get started on how funny the bloopers from that show are!
Yearwood has given us many reasons to laugh over the years, which is why we want to take a look back on five moments where she was too funny to handle. Click on the button below to get started, and prepare to laugh a lot!
1. When She Got Scared Of A Pressure Cooker
Some people are afraid to cook with a pressure cooker, and rightfully so. Those things can be unpredictable!
During an episode of her cooking show, Yearwood aimed to prove that pressure cookers aren’t anything to be scared of, as long as you use them properly.
But a blooper from the show revealed that Yearwood’s plans to show off her pressure cooker didn’t go as smoothly as she hoped. Yearwood ended up freaking out a little bit when her pressure cooker started acting up while the cameras were still rolling. The result was hilarious!
2. The Time She Did Her Reba Impersonation
Anyone who is a fan of Yearwood’s knows that she is good friends with country legend Reba McEntire. So you could say that Yearwood knows the red-headed superstar pretty well.
In fact, Yearwood knows McEntire well enough to be able to do a spot on impersonation of her. This is something she proved during a rib-tickling moment on her cooking show, when she donned a big wig similar in style to the perm McEntire sported earlier in her career.
Yearwood then took to the stage and sang her friend’s song, “Whoever’s In New England,” mimicking McEntire’s style of singing as she did so. The crowd couldn’t stop laughing, and you won’t be able to control your own laughter either!
3. When She Made Fun Of Her Throwback Photo
Yearwood often poses questions to her fans on Facebook, and sometimes shares how she would answer them herself. On April 28, 2016, Yearwood asked her fans to complete the sentence “If I could tell my 16-year-old self anything, I would say______________.”
In addition to her unfinished statement, Yearwood shared a throwback photo of herself as a 16-year-old with a slightly questionable hairstyle.
When it came to how she would finish that sentence, Yearwood has a hysterical response. “I would tell my 16-year-old self, ‘Girl, you are never gonna have the Farrah Fawcett flip! Stop it!’”
Yearwood may not have mastered the art of the hair flip, but she is an expert at making people laugh!
4. The Time She Offered To Give An Organ To A Country Legend
During an appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, Yearwood had to play a funny game “YearWould You Do It?” Cohen asked Yearwood a series of questions about hypothetical situations pertaining to country music or country stars. Some of the questions were far out there, but Yearwood had the perfect answers.
When asked if she would donate an organ to Dolly Parton if she needed it to live forever, Yearwood didn’t even hesitate with her answer! “Yes, of course!” she said. Although she seemed serious when she said her answer, we couldn’t help but laugh at how she didn’t even give it a second thought.
Actually, we were laughing the entire time watching Yearwood play the game, especially when she revealed who’s the bigger party animal, Kelly Clarkson or Reba McEntire? Yearwood’s answer? McEntire!
5. When She Couldn’t Quite Master Her ‘Day Job’
Yearwood once appeared on the GAC series Day Jobs, which was a guaranteed recipe for some comedic moments. Day Jobs places major country music stars back into the roles of the jobs they held before they caught their big breaks. The stars then go throughout their day to see if they still have what it takes in order to get the job done.
For Yearwood’s episode, she worked in a candy shop crafting sweet treats. Although Yearwood is a cook, she had never really made candy prior to her appearance on Day Jobs.
So when she made some questionable-looking snake candies, Yearwood kept cracking herself up in front of the camera as she tried to introduce herself and her day job. Yearwood’s laugh is infectious, which is why we also couldn’t help but chuckle at her failed candy creations.
Thanks to Yearwood for all of the laughs over the years! Keep ’em coming!
