G-Unit leader 50 Cent is looking to diversify his brand by launching a live viral comedy tour set to premiere on his ThisIs50.com website tomorrow (April 28).
As of now, the comedy shows are slated to air once a month.
The site's proper launch will take place on Thursday (April 28), and will feature the debut of 50's comedy show -- dubbed 'This Is 50 Comedy Show'. The show will be taped in front of a live audience in the Times Square Arts Center in New York City, and will be streamed live online. The show will be hosted by ThisIs50 standout Young Jack Thriller, star of ThisIs50's popular 'So Disrespectful' series, and will return on the last Thursday of each month (The Boom Box)
Although access to his website is free, there will be an admission fee to watch the shows.
Fans who wish to watch the show will need to pay $2.99 to access the new website and potential buyers should be comforted to know that their hard earned greenbacks are going towards a worthy cause. While Jack Thriller and company yuck it up on camera, This Is 50 Comedy will donate proceeds of the show's sales to help aid relief efforts in the wake of the natural disaster aftermath in Japan.

50 has confirmed the new venture and amped up its anticipation.
"This tour represents a new era in comedy," 50 said in a statement. "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." (Statement)
Over the past few months, 50 was rumored to be dating late night talk show host/comedienne Chelsea Handler.
"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*ck her, but you might. You would leave after talking with her feeling that she is a cool person." (VIBE)
