Comedy Central Records announces the digital release of Solomon Georgio: Homonégro Superior on Friday, October 20. Born in the Sudan and now living and working in Los Angeles, Georgio burst into comedy with his own brand of indignant irreverence. He flawlessly intertwines biting social commentary with stories of his life as an openly gay African immigrant, and never more brilliantly so than on Homonégro Superior. Coinciding with Comedy Central Record's October 20 release of Homonégro Superior, Georgio's half-hour Comedy Central Stand-Up Presents... special will air the same night at 12:30 a.m. ET/PT.

"Solomon Georgio is an Ethiopian with an Italian name, which has a delightful backstory of war, famine, & sea salt." - TEAM COCO

"Solomon Georgio, born in Sudan to Ethiopian refugees, came to the United States when he was 3 - and it's fair to say he's made the country a better place." - ROLLING STONE
