Lil Dicky Pitches Stephen A. Smith Cameo On “Dave”

Dave is the smash-hit FX comedy loosely based on the life of, and starring, musician Lil Dicky. The show holds an 87% score on Rotten Tomatoes and is well into its third season, which holds a 100% critics rating. Additionally, the show is available on FX and Hulu. Furthermore, Season 3 will conclude on May 31.

Furthermore, The show has become famous for its wealth of celebrity cameos. For example, the next episode of the show, which releases May 17, is set to feature Dave beefing with Jack Harlow at the Met Gala. However, the show has rarely touched on sports. This is a little strange, given its primary Philadelphia setting. Despite this, that might all change thanks to a new interview from Lil Dicky.

Lil Dick Has Perfect Idea For Stephen A. Cameo

With Game 6 between the Sixers and Celtics looming, First Take invited Lil Dicky, who is Philly born and raised, to talk about his work and the upcoming game. Furthermore, he gave a pep talk to the Sixers, who are one game away from the Eastern Conference Finals. However, he also had the opportunity to showcase his creativity for story beats. That came when Molly Qerim asked him how he would incorporate Stephen A. Smith into the show.

“Off the top of my head, I don’t know… I’m thinking about the Sixers and the Celtics, I’m just imagining: What if I got into a little bit of a gambling situation with the wrong bookie, and I need the Sixers to win or my life could end? And I find myself knocking on Stephen A.’s door at like 3 a.m. and telling him that tomorrow on First Take, he’s gotta do something that really eviscerates Jayson Tatum, to the point where it’s a distraction for the team. Something like… kind of a modern day Celtic Pride.” Smith then added that Dave could kidnap Tatum before Smith saved the day. The idea is hilarious, blending shades of Uncut Gems with Dave's tendency to make a situation worse when trying to fix it. However, what do you think about Lil Dicky's pitch? Let us know in the comments.
