Ian Edwards


Ian Edwards is a British-born, Jamaican, NY raised, and now an LA-based
comedian and writer. After making a name on the highly competitive New York
comedy circuit, he made his British debut as part of Stand Up Black America
at the 1993 Edinburgh Comedy Festival.  Back in the states he put in
appearances on TV on Def Comedy Jam, Showtime at the Apollo, Comic View, and
Comedy Central, before his clever writing landed him a move to Los Angeles
to become a writer on the The Keenan Ivory Wayans Show.  Ian has gone on to
combine TV writing with a stand up career. He has written for Saturday Night
Live, My Wife and Kids, MTV’s The Lyricist Lounge Show, ESPN’s Mohr Sports,
the Cartoon Network’s Boondocks, among others. Recent television appearances
include Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, The
Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, HBO’s Bad Boys of Comedy, BBC’s The
World Stands Up and being a cast member of MTV’s Punk’d. He is also featured
on the Comedy Death-Ray album.  Simply put, if you’re in the mood to laugh
at yourself… life… or this ridiculous world, go see an Ian Edwards show.
