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.
