Watch Chance the Rapper play theatre with Elmo and Cookie Monster from ‘Sesame Street’

"Nom nom nom"

Chance The Rapper stars in a new Sesame Street sketch that shows him rehearsing a play with Elmo and Cookie Monster.

‘T is for Theater’ sees Cookie Monster lose his rag after Elmo casts Chance the Rapper as “the monster who loved cookies” in his play of the same name.

Cookie Monster is given the role of ‘Waiter No. 3’ and watches on as Chance messes up Cookie Monster’s  lines such as, “nom nom nom”.

Chance teased working on the classic children’s TV show back in December 2017 with a short video of himself talking to Oscar the Grouch, a dustbin inhabiting character on the programme. He also joined the show’s main characters to give a shout out to his daughter.

The Chicago native has shown off his acting chops elsewhere, including on horror-comedy film Slice (2018). He will also appear in Trolls 2, which is slated for a 2020 release.

Meanwhile, the rapper recently revealed how he saved a man’s life in 2018 after pulling him from a burning car.

“Basically I was driving to church dolo, about to go south on lakeshore [drive] and another car drives into the wall in front of me goin like 90 mph comin off the exit,” he wrote on Instagram.

“I was the only person out there when it first happened and his car was on fire so I had to break his window take off his seatbelt let his seat back and pull a whole grown man out the car unconscious.”

He added: “I was only by myself at first, then two older men helped me pull folks out the front after I got the doors open. But def was getting that ‘am I getting punk’d’ at first.”
