Rapper Kanye West is featured in an unreleased pilot episode of an HBO improve comedy show that, sadly, never made its way on to TV Screens.
Rapper Kanye West stars in the bad acting comedy skit that was never supposed to happen - the untitled HBO sitcom shows him doing a bit of improvised acting as himself visiting a terminally-ill boy who says West's his sixth favourite artist. The video clip surfaced online when the actress in the video - Alison Quinn - who plays the Make-A-Wish aide uploaded the clip to YouTube as part of her acting reel.
Kanye West: A Multi-Talented Bloke Apparently.
The short clip's comedy comes from Quinn not knowing who the rapper is, and patronising him when he says he's been featured on the cover on TIME Magazine. The ill boy reels off a list of artist he likes more than West and the aide repeatedly gets the Yeezus singer's name wrong ("I'm from Ohio; we pronounce it Kenny") to Kayne's increased disgruntlement ("Well I don't care where you from, you pronounce my name Kanye.") The video's pretty funny in an awkward kind of way, showing off new dad Kanye's (lack of) acting skills and it would have been interesting to see what would have happened if the sitcom had seen the light of day.
