Lil Dicky Will Write And Star In An FX Comedy Based On His Life


Lil Dicky disappointed me when he glorified Chris Brown, a domestic abuser and wholly piece of scum, in his latest track Freaky Friday. I know it’s important to him to get back in my good graces, so his latest project will undoubtedly aim to do that.

According to Deadline, FX has ordered a pilot to a half-hour comedy based on the life of Lil Dicky, born David Burd. The 30-year-old rapper and comedian will star in the project as well as co-write it with Jeff Schaffer of The League and Curb Your Enthusiasm fame. The project is also attached to other big swingin’ dicks in entertainment like Kevin Hart and Dicky’s manager Scooter Braun, who will executive produce it.

Deadline reports that the show “centers on a suburban neurotic man in his late 20s who has convinced himself that he’s destined to be one of the best rappers of all time. Now he must convince the world.” Sounds like Lil Dicky to me.

Lil Dicky wrote the untitled pilot episode and it will be directed by Greg Mottola (Adventureland, Superbad). 

Dicky’s most recent Instagram post confirms the project, along with the Pennsylvania native claiming “I’ve been waiting my whole life to make this show.”

Chris Brown better not make a fucking cameo.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
