Team Coco Is Launching a Comedy Label This Summer

Conan O'Brien has always been one to help spotlight up-and-coming standups, and Deadline reports that Team Coco is planning to take that even further by launching a comedy label this summer. The company says the idea for the new record label "was born of a 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." The first release from the Team Coco label will be the debut standup album from Ian Edwards called 100% Half Assed. Edwards has appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and Conan and has worked on Two Broke Girls, Black Dynamite, Trip Tank, SNL, and The Boondocks.
