* In ''Anime/ActionHeroineCheerFruits'', Ann Azuki is such a DreadfulMusician that her singing is actually [[SuckinessIsPainful physically painful]]; her SelfProclaimedRival Kanon Shimura is only marginally better than her (at least her singing doesn't hurt the listeners...). Naturally, their seiyuu Miku Ito and Haruka Shiraishi are actually quite talented singers, and in fact they (along with the actresses who play the rest of the Cheer Fruits crew) [[DoItYourselfThemeTune sing the show's opening and ending themes]].

** Colonel Klink is a horrendous violin player. His actor Werner Klemperer was apparently very talented at it. His father Otto was a famous symphony conductor who left Germany in 1933 when Hitler came to power and served in the US Army during WW2.

* Part of the comedy of ''Series/KeepingUpAppearances'' involves Hyacinth being such a terrible singer that Emmet dreads even being in the same room as her. Patricia Routledge, who portrays Hyacinth, happens to have an excellent singing voice in real life.

* A variant, related not to talent but to class: in the first series of ''Series/DowntonAbbey'', Rose Leslie plays the working-class housemaid Gwen Dawson in the giant titular great house. Leslie herself comes from an old Scottish noble family; she was literally raised in a castle, and her parents own ''another'' castle. This wouldn't be terribly remarkable if it weren't for the fact that the [[UsefulNotes/ATouchOfClassEthnicityAndReligion British class system]] is practically a character on its own on ''Downton''--and because she is the ''only'' true BlueBlood aristocrat[[note]]Dame Creator/MaggieSmith and other titled performers earned their [[UsefulNotes/KnightFever honours]] and are uniformly of non-aristocratic background[[/note]] ever to have been part of the main cast (in a show filled with fictional and not-so-fictional nobs, up to and including the Royal Family).

* Played with in ''Series/ThirtyRock''. In the ShowWithinAShow, Danny, a skilled singer, pretends to be a terrible one to avoid upstaging his costar Jenna. 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 Oscar-nominated Alec Baldwin.
** Liz Lemon is pretty incompetent as a showrunner. Creator/TinaFey is not, as seen when she was head writer on ''Saturday Night Live'' from the late 1990s to the mid-2000s.

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).
** Liz Lemon is can be pretty incompetent as a showrunner. showrunner (depending on the episode). Creator/TinaFey is not, as seen when she was head writer on ''Saturday Night Live'' from the late 1990s to the mid-2000s.mid-2000s--and then running ''30 Rock'' itself (probably the most acclaimed comedy of its era, which was a pretty good time for comedies).
** Because ''30 Rock'' is [[ShowWithinAShow a show about making a fictional show]], it could use this trope in-universe. It did so when the new actor Danny, a skilled singer, [[HollywoodToneDeaf pretends to be a terrible one]] to avoid upstaging his costar Jenna.
