The judges sent Heejun Han packing Thursday night on American Idol, but the notorious joker's television career may not be over.  

"I'm gonna definitely make something out of [this experience] by doing anything that's in front of me: acting, comedy, sitcom, singing, dancing, – just not adult films," Han told reporters following Thursday night's results show.

According to the ousted contestant, he's received encouragement to pursue a comedy career from an unlikely source: judge Randy Jackson.  

He "grabbed me [after the show] and said, 'Dude, you're a great singer, but, dog, you have to be in a sitcom,' " Han said during a conference call Friday morning.  

The singer isn't discounting the possibility of a career in comedy. "Regardless if it's a sitcom, movie, or anything, if they are willing to work with me, I'll do it," he said.  

The funnyman has one suggestion for the premise of his hypothetical sitcom: "An Asian guy who's trying to go out with a really, really pretty blonde girl, and [there should be] a crazy antagonist in there," he said.  

If acting doesn't pan out, the natural comedian says he might consider returning to reality television – just no competitions, except "America's Next Top Model," he joked.

Either way, Han promises exciting things are ahead. "Stay with me cause something better and crazier is coming your way," he said.
