Pamela Anderson is reinventing herself in a very funny way.
The “Baywatch” star, 48, tried her hand at standup comedy Thursday night as host of “Gotham Comedy Live” at the intimate NYC venue.
“I’ve always wanted to try standup because I was inspired by all the great female comedians we’ve had: there’s Joan Rivers, Phyllis Diller, Andy Dick,” she quipped to the packed house.
Accentuating her iconic, gravity-defying assets in a little black dress, Anderson kept the crowd roaring as she playfully poked fun at everything from her acting career to her infamous home video with ex-husband rocker Tommy Lee.
“Did you see that Hulk Hogan got $115 million for his sex tape?” she asked the audience of the wrestler’s recent lawsuit. “That pissed me off! All I got were some stupid Mötley Crüe tickets.”
But Anderson was good-spirited — and realistic — about her chances of being recognized by the Academy for her work on the ’90s drama that made her famous.
“Let’s face it, the only way I’m getting an Oscar from ‘Baywatch’ is if I find one in the sand with a metal detector,” she dead-panned.
While little was off-limits for the Playboy Playmate’s routine, Anderson wanted to avoid insulting certain friends and former lovers during her five-minute set that was simultaneously broadcast live on the AXS network.
“Pam vetoed joking about [ex-husband] Kid Rock or talking about Madonna’s recent meltdown,” an insider told the New York Post of her collaborative efforts with a seasoned comedy writer.
She’d previously told ET Canada that she wasn’t necessarily interested in joining a reboot of Baywatch, as she didn’t see how it would ‘benefit’ her.
But Pamela Anderson obviously found some motivation, as on Thursday she was spotted hitting the Tybee, Georgia set of the upcoming raunchy comedy.
The 48-year-old – who originated the iconic role of lifeguard C.J. Parker – showed off her famous curves in a plunging white suit as she was seen walking around on set.
Pamela wore a three-quarter length sleeved white suit jacket, white featured small slits on the sides of the sleeves.
The well-tailored jacket featured a plunging front, which put the actress’s ample assets on display, as well as her black bra.
It also gave a glimpse at the star’s taut stomach, with the ends of the jacket falling to the tops of her thighs.
She coupled the daring look with a pair of coordinating, fitted white trousers, and hid her eyes behind over-sized, black sunglasses.
Her shoulder-length, platinum blonde tresses were worn in a side part, and styled in big, bold waves, with side bangs sweeping over the left side of her face.
She showed off a big smile and seemed happy to be on set of the upcoming revival, despite having discussed almost rejecting it.
That same day she was seen arriving on set in a sleeveless, form-fitting grey dress that hit at just above her knees.
The figure-hugging number featured a knotted belt that cinched in at the star’s waist, accentuating her toned stomach.
She coupled the dress with a pair of classic, white pumps, and carried a large, patterned white handbag as she arrived on set.
The Home Improvement alum had her blonde tresses styled in loose curls, and pulled back into a stylishly tousled updo.
Previously, Pamela had told ET Canada that she had turned down the initial offer she had received to star in the Baywatch reboot.
‘Baywatch was such a huge part of my life,’ she reasoned, adding: ‘And really they’re trying to do an homage. It’s an honor to have them want me to be a part of it so bad.’
And it seemed she changed her mind, as Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson later announced her role in the movie.
‘A pleasure to welcome (as gorgeous as ever) Pamela Anderson to our #BAYWATCH cast,’ he shared on Instagram on Thursday.
‘We couldn’t have made this movie without you. Welcome home. Thrilled you had a blast with us!’ he continued, adding: ‘#BAYWATCH MAY 19, 2017. #PamAnderson #OS #OriginalSmokestack.’
The upcoming Baywatch movie, which also stars Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra, Kelly Rohrbach (in the role Pamela originated, C.J.), and Ilfenesh Hadera, hits theaters May 2017.
