** In an early episode, Jack was written into a sketch, causing [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity To Ensue]] when he turned out to be a really terrible actor. Of course, he's played by Creator/AlecBaldwin, who has been nominated for Oscars and is widely considered to be an excellent comic actor, ''especially'' for sketch comedy (''Saturday Night Live'' has always loved having him on; that he could do a great Donald Trump in 2016-17 was just gravy).

* Another unintentional example can be found in [[{{Film/WonderWoman2017}} Wonder Woman]] with the casting of Gal Gadot as the titular character: Despite the film's anti-war thesis, Gal Gadot's support of the Israeli Defense Force during the Gaza conflict and her participation of the Lebanon bombing of 2006 drew a lot of controversy, causing the film to be [[{{Banned in China}} banned in Lebanon]]

The second one is worth expanding on: To be funnily bad (when this is used in comedy) requires a great deal of precision. You have to be off tune in exactly the right way to be clearly off tune, at ''exactly the right time'' to engage maximum laughter; the level of skill involved is actually frequently ''less'' than performing "properly".

* Unfortunately inverted by Creator/RussellCrowe in the 2012 adaptation of ''Theatre/LesMiserables'': Crowe had been in Australian Rock Band "30 Odd Foot of Grunts", and yet his his seeming inability to sing as required for the character was one of the main criticisms of the film.
