During the filming of Lil’ Dicky’s new series for FXX, Dave, David Burd had to work hard to avoid showing his genitals to the world. E! Online recently picked up on an interview with David Burd on Pop of the Morning with Victor Cruz.
Burd explained to the host what it was like to take all of his clothes off on set. Fans of the hit television show know that Burd loves to add awkward sex scenes and also demonstrate the bizarre relationship he has with his own genitalia.
When asked what it was like to strip down, Burd explained, “it’s a bit weird.” According to Burd, between takes when he went to get a coffee or something to drink, he had to wear a skin-toned color thong which had to be edited out through CGI.

This picture was captured of me during the first shoot day of season one. If I look overwhelmed, it’s because I was. I had never written a script before. I actually downloaded the screenwriting software for the first time to write this season. I had never acted before. Never executive produced before. Never done anything beyond make rap songs and videos. But a lot of people believed in me. Many of you did from the start of my career. I could tell that it wasn’t just about my music, you guys actually liked and believed in ME. As a person. Then, I was lucky enough to have Fx believe in me too. And then an incredible group of writers, a cast and crew…who came to work every day on a show created by a guy who’s never even worked in the medium before, yet was demanding it be treated and approached like it was the most important work of their careers. And somehow, they all cared about it just as much as I did. They believed it was going to be special. I don’t know why, but they did. Let me be a prime example when I say that things are totally possible in life. I had no legitimate reason to believe I could be a successful rapper. But I believed, and then I became that. I had no real reason to believe I could make a great tv show without any experience. But I believed, and I believe we achieved that. The thing that was always driving me, and still is to this day: “what if I’m right…” I couldn’t afford to never know that answer. So I tried my hardest to find out…And I am so relieved that I did. Because I was fuckin right!!!! What outlandish things to believe! I did it!!!! No matter what you’re interested in pursuing, do yourself a favor and find out if you are right too. And even if you aren’t, you’ll never blame yourself for being wrong. Because you tried your best and that’s all you can do. And that’s peace of mind as far as I can tell. What the hell am I even blabbering about? I’m honestly so privileged that this post is probably annoying and somehow problematic in a way that’s beyond my comprehension. But go watch the finale. I feel like my whole career has been building to it, not just the season. And I gave it my all. Love, Dave
David joked that part of the problem was the “overflow,” in other words, the fact parts of genitalia were slightly slipping out of his underwear. David said the last thing he wanted was to have his private parts somewhere in the studio’s archive.
In the same interview, the Professional Rapper explained what it was like to work with Kourtney Kardashian. At one of Justin Bieber’s house parties, David Burd’s character runs into the reality star. David said Kourtney was one of the “nicest” people he has ever met.
David went on to praise the Kar-Jenner clan, stating that every member was incredibly nice. Moreover, Dave explained that he thinks Kourtney was happy to be doing something outside of reality television for a change. He thinks she enjoyed it.
Regarding Justin Bieber’s appearence on the series, David Burd explained that Justin may actually appear on his next album, but such an endeavor hasn’t been planned yet. In other words, Justin isn’t on it at the moment.
According to Burd, the album features a whole host of emotions and styles. On some tracks, it’s emotional and serious; others are funny, and in some, he’s showing off his rap skills.
