Jay Mohr Jokes About Danica Patrick, She Gives Him Dirty Looks (Video)
Comedian Jay Mohr poked fun at race car driver Danica Patrick during the annual Sprint Cup banquet on Friday night, but all he got back from the NASCAR star were icy glares.
Mohr also joked about Patrick's boyfriend (and driver) Ricky Stenhouse Jr., which resulted in more uncomfortable glares, noted Jalopnik.com (video below).
"Danica, I hope you're not too uncomfortable tonight," joked Mohr. "I know you're not used to being this close to the front!"
According to Yahoo! Sports, Patrick drove up front for most of the Daytona 500, but that was the only time she was "close to the front" in 2013.
"Ricky, let me give you a little advice, just guy-to-guy," added Mohr. "Next time your girlfriend asks you, 'Does this fire suit make me look fat?' Just say no, brother!"
When Patrick was given an award later that night, she fired back at the comic.
"I, of course, have to thank the fans, that's why I have this award, I have amazing fans," said Patrick. "I'm so fortunate. And I think it's pretty safe to say, that Jay Mohr is not one of them."
Patrick, who is not a country singer, will be hosting the American Country Awards on Tuesday night, which drew some advice from Mohr on Twitter:
My dearest @DanicaPatrick. When you host the AMA's Tuesday night, be classy. Don't make any jokes about the artists. Xoxo.
