Kanye West’s HBO Pilot Was Bad

Did you know in 2010, a clip from Kanye West’s improv pilot for HBO was uploaded to YouTube? Gawker notes a 2008 article from MTV explaining the concept.

[Executive Producer Larry] Charles did say that the show is roughly Kanye’s version of Larry David’s show, “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” an idea that Kanye thought up himself. “What Kanye West said to me the first time, he said, ‘I’m the black Larry David.’ That’s the first thing he said to me. So it’s like a Kanye-and-‘Curb’ show, it’s kind of improvised about the situations and stuff.

Kanye, not willing to believe his project wasn’t the blackĀ Curb Your Enthusiasm, has since turned his life into one long runningĀ Curb Your Enthusiasm skit in an attempt to prove everyone wrong.
