Good friend of the Comic Strip Live! Jim Breuer raised a bit of controversy on the internet this last week when a leaked video of him “freaking out” on a production assistant hit the web.
Breuer, known for his stretch on Saturday Night Live as well as films like “Dick” and “Half Baked” along with his stand-up, was on the set of a new Pizza Hut commercial when evidently, Jim didn’t agree with the actions of a production team member.
Debate has been raging over the authenticity of this clip, but knowing Jim like we do, we wouldn’t put it past the funny guy to break up the on-set monotony by going for a laugh in a manner like this.
