Kellyanne Conway once had a standup act and it needs to be seen to be believed

Donald Trump's campaign manager/counsellor Kellyanne Conway will probably go down in history for coining the nonsensical phrase "alternate facts".

But back in 1998, Conway performed a full 11-minute stand-up comedy set at a Washington DC charity event - and now somebody has uploaded it in full to YouTube.

And it is excruciating.

To be fair, any set that heavily namedrops 1990s political hotshots like Jerry Nadler, Norman Ornstein and Fred Thompson isn’t going to hold up well in 1997, never mind 2017. +

She also keeps it full 90s by referencing Ally McBeal.

Conway uses all the stock cliched tricks of hack comics, like "How about that local sports team?", and dropping clangers like this:

A new survey says that 70 per cent of men think about sex all the time.

The other 30 percent are lying!

Sigh.

And then, nine minutes in, she pulls out a feather boa and does the world’s worst musical number.

Conway sings a Jessica Rabbit-style self-penned song titled "The Pundit Blues".

It will make you want to claw your ears off.

Watch the whole thing here, if you dare:

We’d say stick to the day job, Conway.
