Ian Edwards

Ian Edwards was born in England and raised in Jamaica. His family moved to NY when he was 17. The United States is a great place to live, but not when you have a third world accent and are friendless. Ian discovered comedy while he was literally slanging burgers at Burger King in East Meadow, Long Island. He turned to see his co-workers laughing. Another employee Greg Ellis had them on the floor in stitches. That's when it hit Ian. He needed to tap into his funny side. From then on he became the second funniest person at Burger King. He even made the prince, Greg laugh. 

Ian released his debut album 100% Half Assed on Conan O’Brien’s record label, Team Coco Records. He was a full time staff writer on season 1 of the hit ABC show Black-ish, and has worked on Ice Cube’s Barbershop 3, Jerrod Carmichael’s show for NBC, Tangerine, Two Broke Girls, Adult Swim’s Black Dynamite, Dealing with Idiots, Punk’d, an as a writer on shows such as SNL, The Boondocks and MTV’s The Lyricist LoungeHe has performed stand-up on HBO’s Bad Boys of Comedy, Showtime’s Live Nude Comedy and the Comedy Death Ray Album.

Ian hosts two of his own podcasts: Soccer Comics on the All Things Comedy Network and The Preposterous Sessions on The DeathSquad Network.
