First live comedy event from bestselling author and “Chelsea Lately” regular

LOS ANGELES, August 25, 2014 – Inception Media Group, LLC, a diversified media company specializing in the production, acquisition and distribution of entertainment content, has produced and will distribute the first-ever comedy special with writer and comedian Heather McDonald. Inception owns worldwide distribution rights across all platforms.

The comedy special, “I Don’t Mean To Brag…” was taped during two sold-out live shows at the El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood, CA on April 19.

McDonald is best known for her roundtable appearances on E!’s top rated show “Chelsea Lately” and later became a breakout star on the E! series “After Lately,” which chronicled the behind-the-scenes shenanigans of the “Chelsea Lately” cast and crew.

“Heather has a very unique and relatable brand of comedy that appeals to a large audience,” said Garrett M. Lee, executive vice president of product development for Inception Media Group, who oversees the company’s comedy acquisitions and productions. “This is her first stand-up special and we anticipate a very eager reception.”

McDonald is also a best-selling author with her book “You’ll Never Blue Ball in this Town Again” on The New York Times best-seller list for seven weeks and climbing to the #1 position on Amazon’s “Bestsellers in Entertainment” list. McDonald’s second book, “MY INAPPROPRIATE LIFE: Some Material Not Suitable for Small Children, Nuns, or Mature Adults,” was also a national bestseller. As a stand-up comedian, McDonald just wrapped her “My Inappropriate Life” tour where she performed to sold-out crowds across the country. She also opened for Chelsea Handler’s “Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me” tour in sold out performances around the country.

The production was filmed by Art & Industry with Michelle Caputo and Shannon Hartman producing and directing.
