Will Ferrell Started His Career By "Singing" The Star Trek: TOS Theme On Stage
The iconic Star Trek theme music penned by Alexander Courage is known throughout the world. And, in a small way, may have launched the career of one of the most popular comedians of the past 15 years. Love his movies or hate them, you have to admire Will Ferrell simply for starting his career in comedy by "singing" the theme to TOS. In a recent Youtube video posted by ABC News, Will talks of his early beginnings in the Southern California comedy scene.
"One of the first shots was at The Barn in Tustin, California, which had a comedy night... and I didn't get a lot of laughs that night, I'm not going to lie to you." He continues, "I'm not a joke teller perse, so... my opening bit was 'I don't know if you know this, but I used to be the lead vocalist of the original theme to Star Trek.' So, I would then sing that song". Will then goes into a rendition of the TOS Theme. We got a good chuckle from it, although we can't tell if Will is saying "Star Trek" or "Star Track".
