The Guy Who Almost Sucked Dick for Fyre Fest Might Get His Own Show

Andy King, The Guy Who Almost Sucked Dick for Fyre Fest, Might Get His Own Show

Ah, prestige television.

Ridiculous-endeavor-slash-ridiculous-documentary-fodder Fyre Fest has a Miss Congeniality, and her name is Andy King. Shortly after going viral for a shy but earnest recounting of how he almost sucked dick for the most heterosexual cause in history, King's door is apparently being beaten down by network offers for a solo venture, Vanity Fair reports.

"I had three TV show offers this week, from notable networks," King tells VF, noting that the show will have no serious connection to the festival. "You're too young to remember this, but in the old world of TV it was The Carol Burnett Show and these fun, light-hearted shows that weren't all crime-related."

"Let's just say it's going to be a show about hosting crazy events--what it takes to make them happen," King explains. "There will be cliff-hangers, and you'll get to follow me around and see how I pull them off." Hijinks!

While we don't know if the show has an official home just yet, we did learn a bit more about how King's segment of note in Fyre came about.

"As you could see in the documentary, I hesitated when [documentary filmmaker Chris Smith] asked me," King says. "Then, maybe out of my own naivete, I said to Chris, 'Well, I know you're not going to use this. But I'll tell you the story. . .' Then I went on my way, and I thought nothing of it."

After recounting the interview to colleagues, King was advised to call Smith and request to pull the clip. But, after some sweet talking from the filmmaker, he took yet another one for the team.

"I called Chris, but he said, 'Andy, you're going to have to trust me on this one. . . . We need it, and your delivery is phenomenal.'"

Seeing an uncomfortable theme here? Apparently King doesn't.

"But you know what," King added, "It was just me telling a story and being very calm, and it wasn't sensationalized. It was what happened."

While we're somewhat glad King's consent doesn't seem to be an issue, one can't help but wonder what deserving, incredibly written script with industry-changing characters is gathering dust in a drawer somewhere because it didn't come prepared to fellate the head of Bahamian customs.

But by all means: yas Andy *tongue pop* give em The 'Ol Razzle Dazzle.
