Chicago born and raised artist, Chance The Rapper, announced on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that he is going to pursue a stand-up comedy career. During his interview, Chance talks about postponing The Big Day tour, due to paternity leave for his newborn baby daughter and more. The rapper then goes on to share a story on how his idea of doing comedy came up. According to the up and coming comedian, comedy was something Chance always wanted to do.
His opportunity arose when he and wifey, Kirsten Corley, were at the Laugh Factory in Chicago back in June, where he admitted to being “wasted” and believed it was his time to take the mic. Corley, with hesitation, let him hit the stage where he told incredibly corny jokes, such as farting on school desks, leaving half of the room giggling, and the other half pretty disappointed. Whether stand-up comedy takes flight or is an epic fail, we respect Chance for building the liquid courage to attempt a big break in his career path. Watch the full interview below:
