Bill Burr Presents IanTalk: Ideas Not Worth Spreading, the second of three All Things Comedy produced specials previously announced by Comedy Central, premieres July 12 at midnight ET/PT on Comedy Central.
In IanTalk: Ideas Not Worth Spreading, Ian Edwards gives his own edgy twist on a traditional TedTalk. He shares his thoughts on abortion, Harriet Tubman, and why he refuses to learn to swim for his own safety. Through his authentic balance of charm and self-deprecating humor, he’s able to dive into the intricacies of life, success, and dating with a relatable and refreshing twist.
Leading up to the on-air premiere, the Comedy Central Stand-Up YouTube channel, Comedy Central Stand-Up social-media accounts, and the CC App will feature clips from the special. Fans can follow Edwards on Twitter at @IanEdwardsComic and Comedy Central Stand-Up at @standup to join the social conversation around the special (#BillBurrPresents).
