RAPPER KANYE WEST TEAMS WITH COMEDY CENTRAL

 

Rapper Kanye West is adding yet another title to his already full résumé: puppet master?

 

Well, kind of. The rapper is teaming up with Comedy Central for a show that The Hollywood Reporter describes as "hip-hop meets the Muppets." A representative for the network confirmed Tuesday morning (September 23).

 

The show, tentatively titled "Alligator Boots," is from the same team behind Comedy Central's puppet show "Crank Yankers": Jackhole Prods., which was founded by Jimmy Kimmel, Adam Corolla and Daniel Kellison. A half-hour pilot has already been shot for the show.

 

Currently under consideration for 2009, the show would feature music by West and Chicago-based rapper and Kanye collaborator Rhymefest, who would also work alongside Kellison as executive producers. Each week the show would have a different celebrity host and employ a format similar to that of "The Muppet Show." West is the host for the pilot.

 

This isn't West's first foray into television. In August, the MC was reported to be in talks with HBO to star in a single-camera show that would follow him throughout his day-to-day life, both personal and professional. Larry Charles, who executive produces Larry David's show "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (the plot of which is similar to the descriptions of Kanye's show), was linked to the project as well. The big holdup, the reports claimed, was that the team hadn't found a writer.

 

At the time, an HBO source reported, "Since it's in development, they are just in talks, and we don't generally comment on that because nothing is set," and added that the show was just a few steps away from getting the green light. No further news had emerged about the HBO show.
