The new record label is intended to shine a spotlight on up-and-coming comedians while also giving them creative control and a bigger stake in the release success.

Since the 2010 debut of TBS' Conan, O'Brien has featured numerous stand-up comedians on his late-night program. Team Coco has also produced several comedy specials, including Team Coco Presents: The Conan Writers Live and highlighted comedians on Conan After Hours, which is hosted by The Pete Holmes Show host Pete Holmes.
