Funny or Die, founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay will soon publish books! WATCH Pearl the Landlord Video, the viral hit that launched Funny or Die!
Huffington Post reports that Funny Or Die will soon add a comedy book publishing to their media empire. Currently Funny or Die produces original Internet and television content.
Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Mike Farah from Funny Or Die are signed on, and Swanna MacNair of Creative Conduit will be overseeing the project and co-repping with CAA on behalf of the media company.
It is expected that Funny Or Die’s regular stable of comedians and actors will play a large part in promoting the new publishing arm of the media company.
The viral video hit that launched Funny or Die is Pearl the Landlord. The insanely funny “Pearl” video created a storm of controversy when it hit the web because the nasty Pearl character is actually Adam McKay’s daughter, who was a toddler at the time.
