Melissa McCarthy Talks Doing Stand-Up For The First Time On 'The Daily Show' (VIDEO)

Melissa McCarthy dropped by "The Daily Show" on Tuesday to talk about her new movie "Identity Thief", and while she was there she gave Jon Stewart the low down on how she got started as a stand-up. The trick: put absolutely no thought into it whatsoever.

We also learned what she did to make a club booker yell at her after her first set, and why Jason Bateman can and should be blamed for everything. Watch the clip above.
