Lil Dicky’s “Dave” Is Turning Out To Be The Next Great Comedy

Expand

If you’ve seen David “Lil Dicky” Burd’s viral music videos over the last few years, you’d know he’s funny as hell. And It’s no surprise that the FX Channel has tapped him to do a series. Similar to shows from Larry David and Louis CK, Dave tuns up Lil Dicky’s persona to the max and tells the tale of trying to rise above being a viral personality to a successful, respected rapper.

Watch Dave on Wednesdays on FX Channel, with new episode rebroadcasted on Hulu the next day.


“Dave” centers on a 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 his closest friends, because with their help, he actually might convince the world. Simultaneously exasperating and inspiring to his friends, he vows to leave no stone unturned on his quest to become the next superstar. The half-hour comedy is based on the life of rapper and comedian Dave Burd, better known by his stage name Lil Dicky.

When Section 20 thwart her plans by destroying the Novichok laboratory, Lowry attacks the black site directly and succeeds in freeing Idrisi.

However, Lowry was radicalised by Idrisi and attacked a civilian target instead, killing an American diplomat. With British Intelligence complicit in a terror attack, Lowry stole a copy of “the Atlas”, a database of British and American operations which she intended to give to Russia. Idrisi was subsequently captured, prompting Lowry to hide the Atlas on an island off the Croatian coast.

McAllister and Wyatt are unable to prevent the Russians from securing the Atlas, leading Section 20 to raid a Russian intelligence bunker and steal a database of their own.
