Rapper Flavor Flav is preparing to test out his skills as a stand-up comedian by touring the U.S. for a laugh.

The veteran hip-hop star will embark on a series of gigs this summer as part of the Flavor Flav's Freaky Comedy Tour.

He will play a number of sets in Charlotte, North Carolina in August and in Neenah, Wisconsin in October , according to Allhiphop.com.

The tour comes as a boost for the star, who was recently forced to remove his name from his beloved Fried Chicken restaurant in Idaho amid a business dispute.
