Chris Pine once joked about summer camp in a stand-up routine

Actor Chris Pine was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live recently and talked about a time he did stand-up and joked about his time at a summer camp where campers showered with a garden hose.

“They only let you shower every third day but with a garden hose,” he told Kimmel. “I can’t believe I’m talking about this publicly.”

Kimmel asked Pine if he was sure it wasn’t a prison that he was at instead of a summer camp. “Did they other kids, did they seem tough and were they tattooed.”

“I only got shanked three times,” Pine said, adding that there was a squirrel infestation at this camp that he and the other campers hunted to keep in check.
