Zac Efron Swears He’s Funny

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Zac Efron is known more for his pirouettes than his punchlines thanks to the hit High School Musical.

However, the Disney heartthrob insists he’s a comedy killer.

Efron hosted Saturday Night Live this past Saturday (Apr. 11) and felt right at home because he was the king of comedy back in high school.

He explains, “When I was 17, it was the height for my improv team. We were part of this program called Destination Imagination, so five of my very close friends and I toured the country to do competitions.”

In fact, Efron and his comedy crew were so funny, they won the world championships in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Although the star is a stud now, his theatrics didn’t always help him with the ladies.

He says, “It was probably my sophomore year that I realized I wasn’t at all the coolest kid in school because I was into drama.”

Efron’s comedy chops can be seen in his new movie, 17 Again, which hits theaters this Friday (Apr. 17).
