Featuring Brando Murphy (not sure what he's relation to Eddie Murphy is; couldn't confirm anything) and Mason Pryor (son of Richard Pryor) are teaming up to launch a comedy show, establishing what they're calling the "Sons" brand.

Details via press release below, which also includes mention of an Eddie Murphy biopic starring Brandon, but which I couldn't verify the legitimacy of:

Los Angeles, CA September 17, 2012 - Los Angeles entertainment company Thunderhouse Media presents a new brand in the world of comedy, the "Sons of Comedy” featuring Brando Murphy and Mason Pryor.

Launching on September 29th in Studio City, this night of incredible entertainment and comedy will introduce Brando Murphy, who is starring in a biopic on the life of superstar Eddie Murphy, and Mason Pryor, son of the legendary Richard Pryor, to the big stage. Murphy and Pryor are ready to plant their own flag with the "Sons" brand, alongside several other performers with promises of a night full of big laughs.

The Sons of Comedy: Murphy and Pryor, will feature an evening show taking place at 10PM on Saturday September 29 at Rain Nightclub located at 12215 Ventura Blvd., Studio City, CA 91604. The red carpet will begin at 9PM.

These young men are ready to change the face of comedy,” explains Robinson. Just like their predecessors, Latham Entertainment (The Kings of Comedy) and Code Black Entertainment (All Star Comedy Jam series), Thunderhouse Media is positioned to deliver entertainment to the masses whether it’s on the big screen, on television or live events.
