Previously unreleased clip from the “Totally Biased” pilot presentation: Janine Brito apologizes as Tracy Morgan

Here’s a clip you didn’t see on the first two seasons of FX’s Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, because it didn’t appear in any of those episodes! It’s Janine Brito, “dandy lesbian dandy” writer for the show, apologizing last year on behalf of Tracy Morgan, in the voice and imagined words of Tracy Morgan. This segment appeared in the original pilot presentation for the late-night talk show, back when it was titled “The Bell Curve” after Bell’s earlier one-man stage show.

Brito, as Morgan, delivers the apology the comedian really would have given following that show back in Nashville when…oh, you don’t need to go back into it to enjoy this impersonation.

The “real” apology would have begun something like this…

“From the bottom of my mind grapes, I want to apologize to everyone on this planet, and any other planets that have yet to be discovered but are also inhabited by people. Or things that are almost people. Like centaurs. Or mermaids.”

Roll it and watch the rest now!

FX’s Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell returns with new episodes in May 2013.
