According to several industry insiders, we hear that comedian Ian Edwards is about to land on a brand new comedy label that will stem from Conan O’Brien, which will be titled 100% Half Assed!
The reports state that the new label has plans to launch in June with Edwards as the first comedian to debut on it. The new album was recently recorded at The La Jolla Comedy Store on March 8th, and word is that the label has definite plans on assisting in new and upcoming talent as it plans to start by helping shine a spotlight on them.
Over the past 20 years, O’Brien has used his late-night franchise as a platform for launching groundbreaking stand-up comedy, and since debuting in 2010 on TBS, Conan reps say their show has featured more performances from stand-up comedians than any other late-night program on TV.
Edwards is also going to use this to catapult his career even further, as he is currently writing on CBS’ Two Broke Girls and he recently launched his own podcast, Soccer Comic Rant, on the podcast network All Things Comedy.
