Russell Wilson shows up in Netflix comedy sketch with Joel McHale

Apr 2, 2018, 12:50 PM

Take a star quarterback and give him plenty of off-time after not reaching the playoffs, and what do you get? Answer: Sketch comedy with Russell Wilson and Northwest native Joel McHale.

Joel McHale chooses between raising his kids or the 12th man flag

Wilson appeared alongside actress Kate Flannery of “The Office” fame in a sketch for McHale’s new Netflix offering “The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale.” The bit pokes fun at male testosterone supplements and takes a rather dark turn. Don’t watch if you are sensitive to rips in the multiverse. Also, don’t watch if you don’t know what a multiverse is.

It should come as no surprise that the Seahawks quarterback showed up on McHale’s new show. The host is known to be a huge Seahawks fan, even having the honor of raising the 12th Man flag before a game at CenturyLink Field. McHale and Wilson have also pulled an Alaska Airlines jet for charity.
