Clint Black is giving comedy a second shot. The country star, who performed standup comedy on the short-lived reality show, 'Secret Talents of the Stars,' has announced he'll star in a new comedy special, coming to TV in October.

"Ya know, people have been laughing at me my entire life, and it's time I got paid for it," Black joked to Nashville's WKRN.

Even though 'Secret Talents of the Stars' was a flop, TV executives were impressed with Black's comedic skills and approached him about doing his own TV special. The singer has been practicing with several gigs at a Nashville comedy club.
