CURTIS Pritchard should probably stick to his day job as he leave fans cringing after trying his hand a stand-up comedy.
The Celebs Go Dating star left the audience cringing as he opted for some very blue humour in the hopes of getting a laugh.
Curtis Pritchard tried his hand at stand-up comedy and it did not go well
Curtis, 25, was among the stars learning stand-up comedy from the professionals for a two-part series in support of Stand Up To Cancer.
The reality show regular was paired up with Loose Women’s Judi Love for the new C4 show Stand Up And Deliver.
The first episode of the two-part series saw Curtis rehearse his jokes with Judi as another well-known professional comedians, Jason Manford and Nick Helm watched on.
He started his rehearsal by getting up on stage while fumbling with the fly on his jeans, “oh bloody hell”, he cursed.

“Learnt that on Love Island, didn’t he,” heckled one of the comedians as Curtis continued his awkward session.
Curtis continued: “I just went to the toilet! You know, this full on brings me onto something. I came out of a restaurant – I’d just been to the toilet and I’d done the same thing – and all these women were looking at me, right?”
Judi was not impressed.
“They were looking me in the eye and I was like, ‘Goddamn, you look like KFC don’t ya? Finger lickin’ good!” Curtis declared trying to land a punchline.
His mentor Judi Love could not believe what she was hearing and all Jason Manford could do was hold his head in despair
“Mmm, you’re lookin’ good!’ Then I realised I was flying low.”
Jason just put his heads in his hands in despair as Curtis continued.
“I’ve got a joke,” Curtis continued. “What did the dick say to the condom?”

But Curtis admitted, “that was absolutely rubbish by me.”
The majority of fans watching the show agreed.
“I think we were all feeling embarrassed for Curtis…..it was cringe #StandUpAndDeliver,” wrote one Twitter user.
Another added: “”Oh my days. Curtis is painfully unfunny. #StandUpAndDeliver.”
