Team Coco to Launch Comedy Record Label in June With Debut Album from Comedian Ian Edwards

Team Coco is set to launch a brand new comedy record label this summer, beginning with the release of the debut stand-up album from comedian Ian Edwards. 100% Half Assed was recorded at the world famous La Jolla Comedy Store on March 8, 2014, and will be released in June 2014. The concept for the new record label was born of an organic desire to help shine a spotlight on rising comedians while allowing them more creative control and a greater stake in the success of the release.

Over the past 20 years, Conan O'Brien has used his late-night program as a supportive platform for groundbreaking stand-up comedy. Since debuting in 2010 on TBS, CONAN has featured more performances from stand-up comedians than any other late night program on television. In addition to inviting many talented comics to perform on CONAN, Team Coco has produced comedy specials like Team Coco Presents: The Conan Writers Live and has spotlighted some of the show's favorite comedians on CONAN After Hours, hosted by Pete Holmes.

Ian Edwards' unique perspective, creative use of language and ability to blend stand-up and sketch comedy in his performances make him the perfect choice to launch the Team Coco comedy label.
