After successful ventures into film, technology and clothing, hip hop star 50 Cent is trying to break into the viral comedy gameÃ‚Â by starting his own website, Thisis50Comedy.com.Ã‚Â Although currently semi-live, the site is to formally launch tomorrow with the premiere of his original web series, This Is 50 Comedy Show. The program will be hosted byÃ‚Â 50 Cent associate Young Jack Thriller, andÃ‚Â taped in front of a live audience at the TimesÃ‚Â Square ArtsÃ‚Â Center.
“The comedy game is about to change,”Ã‚Â the rap impresario promises in an introÃ‚Â videoÃ‚Â on the site.Ã‚Â “Your life is about to change.” We have to say that he’s sort of right. We truly haven’t been the same since we made our way over to his corner of cyberspace. Never has anyone taken comedy so seriously. It may look more like a pro-wrestling fan page than a humor hub, but for $2.99 a month the site promises to bring you “the cutting-edge humor of the nation’s funniest comedians.”
