Rapper 50 Cent, a American recording artist, launched a This Is 50 Comedy Show wedbsite on Thursday with all proceeds expected to be given to assist relief efforts in Japan. The This is 50 Comedy Show will feature raw footage of the rapper, filmed from New York City, and live streamed to the show's website. Access to watch 50 Cent and assist Japan are expected to "expose world-wide web subscribers to the cutting-edge humor of the nations funniest comedians." The show is expected to air on the last Thursday of the month and will be hosted by Jack Thriller.
In an official statement from 50, the rapper assures the show will evoke laughter in ways like no other comedy tour. 50 offered: "this tour represents a new era in comedy. I've put together the funniest, most ignorant comedians you ever seen and we will travel the earth bringing laughter, joy, love and pain, sunshine and rain, so brace yourselves because we are coming to a city near you."
It seems 50 Cent's new venture may have been linked to his personal life, as rumors abound 50 has been dating comedienne Chelsey Handler of E!'s Chelsey Lately, though neither have officially confirmed the relationship. Handler frequently jabs at the notion on her hit show, while 50 offered to Vibe magazine during a recent interview, "Chelsea is confident. I think confidence is the sexiest thing about a person. She's the kind of person that if you're blessed with the opportunity to hang out with her, you'll enjoy it. I'm not sure you'll look at her and actually want to jump over the table and f**k her, but you might. You would leave after talking with her feeling that she is a cool person."
