Then you also get people like Jack Benny. I've heard those that know the violin can tell the difference in a bad violinist (which is just unpleasant to listen to) and a good violinist hamming it up (like Mister Benny). He probably wasn't good enough to make it rich just playing the violin -- though he did get his start as a violinist in vaudeville -- but turning it into a comedy prop was what started his path to stardom.

I heard Wisseu is independently wealthy and paid for The Room out of his own pocket. There was no convincing of others to fund his vanity project.

To make someone really bad at something I would give them the Incompetence (skill) quirk and Delusion (I have said skill and cannot fail at it). This means they try something at default but at a further skill penalty....giving you a person who is terrible at what they do.
