Johnny Depp Makes Surprise Appearance at Los Angeles Comedy Club – and Takes the Stage
Johnny Depp jumped on stage and interrupted comedian Mat Edgar's set
Johnny Depp took the stage on Sunday night – but this time not with his band.
Depp, 53, made a surprise appearance at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles over the weekend.
To the audience’s delight, the actor jumped on stage and interrupted comedian Mat Edgar’s set. He appeared to be in good spirits as the two exchanged jokes while the crowd cheered them on.
When Depp took the stage, he joked that Edgar’s time was up, reports E! News.
The actor looked casual for the night out, flashing his signature edgy style as he wore black jeans with a matching T-shirt, as well as a handful of long necklaces and scarves. He also sported a new, shorter haircut.
Depp reportedly arrived at the club with his friend Doug Stanhope, who had performed at the Comedy Store in the past, and the two stuck together throughout the night as they watched the other acts.
The Comedy Store posted a shot of Depp and Stanhope hanging out backstage with fellow comedians Ryan Adams, Kerry Mitchell and Brett Erickson.
This is the first time Depp has been spotted since returning stateside from his private island in the Bahamas.
Prior to his Bahamas getaway, the actor toured with his band the Hollywood Vampires in Europe.
Depp has only been seen publicly a handful of times since his estranged wife Amber Heard filed for divorce and was granted a temporary restraining order after claiming the star abused her throughout their relationship.
Following the allegations, Stanhope came to Depp’s defense, claiming Heard was blackmailing the actor and lying about the alleged domestic abuse.
In response, Heard filed a defamation lawsuit against the comedian.
