I already knew kid fury was going in this direction. The show should be like a gay, insecure type show witj a cast of like black frinds/living single/ girlfriend/sex in the city type show. The depression angle should be played like a kinda cheers show type angle. I like formula comedy like Frazier. They can do a lot with this if they get the right cast of actors. I wish him the best, he deserves. His ass is funny in a black, gay male Daria kind of way.

Earlier that damn autocorrect, also for show ideas Kid could do a kind of curb your enthusiasm, where he is a Larry David character trying to break into show business as a comedy writer, who has depression hilarious episodes can include going to audition and have to engage in weird rituals, where he is high on his medical kush or pills, go on a talk show dressed as Seinfeld did with that fancy white ruffle shirt, this comedy could work if they build on a nice friendly ensemble. cast of new up and coming talent, with the occasional run in of famous comedians, damn my ass should have been a comedy writer I got a million ideas on show episodes Go Fury I knew yo ass was going to make it, also get with MajaHype from Youtube his skits impersonating various west indian cultures, african and white culture is hilarious, quite a few talents on Youtube who do hilarious skits including the dudes Dating a Jamaican. Its time for new flavor!!!

I loved Kid Fury back during his YouTube days. I haven't followed him much since then. He started doing "The Read" with that wildebeest and it was okay at first but she was too negative for my tastes. He is very funny and talented. I hope Hollywood doesn't eat him alive.
