Kanye West has had a rumored show coming to HBO for a while now but one of its producers Larry Charles says for now, it seems like HBO is changing their mind. "It was really good, but … I think it was too hardcore for HBO." Charles went on to say "People gave it a very good response and it seems to be on the shelf right now. The management has shifted at HBO so we're waiting to see."
Charles did give us a little insight into what the show actually is. He says it's Kanye's version of Larry Davids "Curb Your Enthusiam" (a hit currently on HBO). "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."
Larry Charles, who has been involved with many hit shows including Seinfeld, says of Kanye "He's so much funnier than people realize," Charles continued. "Even the whole being-full-of-himself stuff is a joke to him and he likes to play that of being like, you know, Kanye. And he's kind of a brilliant guy actually."
