Joe Torry Signs With Universal & Moves Forward With New Reality Show!

We just discovered that comedian Joe Torry has been quietly building up some great momentum with several new ventures about to drop in the market, besides just doing standup.
First up, we hear that Torry has recently signed a Voicetone deal with Universal Music Group and a new company titled Krazy Swag Entertainment that will jointly make available their new product on June 29th.
We also discovered a new film project that Torry has taken on, tentatively titled Pawn Shop, (which is being produced by Torry), and he is also taking on a new TV project as he is currently filming a new reality show with his brother Guy Torry. We hear there are several networks interested  which may include BET, VH1 and/or Comedy Central- but we can't say for certain yet. We do know that the full details on the show will be released soon.
Finally, we also discovered that Torry is also becoming a book author, as his new book is going to be titled The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. No word yet on what the book will actually be about, but if we had to guess we would have to say it's his ventures in the stand-up industry and his rise to meteoric fame which began way back as he was the second host of the very popular Russell Simmons' Def Comedy Jam series on HBO.
