Daniel Radcliffe, who is best known for his role in "Harry Potter," made his comedy stand-up debut on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" on Monday.

The actor is best known for his dramatic roles in the "Harry Potter" franchise and on-stage in "Equus," but he attempted to demonstrate his comedy chops on the evening talk show.

"I've always admired stand-ups, I love stand-up, but I've been completely fearful of it," Radcliffe told Fallon. "I think you have to be completely insane."

After Jimmy Fallon thanked the actor for calling him insane, he gave Radcliffe a proper introduction as "Danny" Radcliffe and the actor told one joke, which he attributed to British comedian Peter Kay.

"How do you kill a circus?" Radcliffe asked the audience before answering, "Go for the juggler."

Radcliffe will star in the upcoming thriller "The Woman in Black," which follows Arthur Kipps, a young lawyer who visits a remote village to deal with the accounts of a recently deceased client. There, he is confronted by the ghost of a scorned woman who is out for revenge. The movie is slated for release on October 28.

The movie will be Radcliffe's first movie since filming the final installment of the "Harry Potter" franchise.

Radcliffe is currently in New York City, starring in the Broadway musical "How To Make it in Show Business Without Really Trying," at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre, where it officially opened on March 27, 2011. (See photos and a video of him performing.)

Radcliffe rose to fame playing boy wizard Harry Potter in the films based on the books by J.K. Rowling. He can be seen next in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," which sees the final showdown between teen wizard Harry Potter and the evil wizard Voldemort. Part 1 was released on November 19 and the second part will hit theaters on July 15, 2011.
