Chance the Rapper has set his sights on a new field of entertainment – stand-up comedy.
The rapper – born Chancelor Jonathan Bennett – recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his debut studio album, ‘The Big Day’. He also went on to discuss his comedic aspirations.
“I believe that one day I will be a world-famous comedian,” Chance told host Jimmy Kimmel. “I have jokes [stored on] my phone… I’m a comedic guy.”
The rapper later recounted his impromptu stand-up performance at Chicago’s Laugh Factory in June, where he got “wasted” and told some “corny” jokes on stage. “I was bent on getting on stage that night and I just felt like it was my time, so I got up there,” he said.
