Comedy Central Orders Sketch Pilot Produced by Chris Rock
This is by 21-year-old comedian Deshawn Raw, who just made a deal with Comedy Central to shoot a pilot for a new sketch series. Entitled D-Raw, the show will be executive produced by Chris Rock and focus on pop culture and Raw’s life in Rancho Cucamonga (which is very a funny sounding town). Raw already has a significant YouTube presence, amassing over 52 million views in about a year (which is an average of about 52 million views per year). This is all pretty impressive for a bad rapper.
