Brandon Marshall will be spending this Tuesday honing his comedy chops on television.
The receiver is taking over the hosting duties for one episode of Sports Soup — a show that is described as “an irreverant look at the state of sports and the people who play and report on them.”
The show plays clips from the world of sports — even pulling from pre- and post-game shows, press conferences and local media — and the host makes witty comments in between highlights.
The host is typically Matt Iseman, who was actually born in Denver, and the comedian said in a press release that he is honored to have Marshall take over his hosting duties for Tuesday’s show.
“I’m excited to have Brandon Marshall guest host Sports Soup — it’s not every day you get a Pro Bowl receiver filling in for you,” Iseman said. “Plus, he promised to return the favor and let me start the next time the Broncos play the Raiders. He thinks I should be good for at least a couple of touchdowns.”
The episode airs tonight at 8 p.m. MST on VERSUS, which according to the station’s Web site is channel 73 for Comcast subscribers in the Denver area.
