A nationwide talent search accepting the best professional and non-professional stand-up comedians. Once the selection process is narrowed to 10, the show covers the contestants as they live together and compete for an exclusive contract with NBC, and to be called the Last Comic Standing. In Season 3 ("The Battle of the Best"), the object of the contest was the first season's 1 more
...0 finalists versus second season's 10 finalists. No immunity challenges this time, or time spent showing the comics living together. It's pure stand-up.

Are you ready for this finale? Michael Palascak, Dominique, Ian Bagg, Andy Erikson, and Clayton English are our top five tonight, ladies and gentleman.

A line to add onto the "Special Skills" section of a resume?  "I'm expecting everybody to bring their best," Keenen claims, saying that the show is responsible for national exposure. So there's that too, I guess! Backstage, the contestants are mulling around. "You know when you got an "In '... more Comments

Tonight marks the end of the invitationals, which means that next week, we'll focus on the group of superstars that are in the running for the grand prize.

'Last Comic Standing' Season 9 Premiere Recap: Meeting The Comedians

Well, friends... here we are. Another season of Last Comic Standing, with a brand new host, (Anthony Jeselnik), a brand new judge, (Norm Macdonald), and a brand new Roseanne (she's blonde now!) I saw JB Smoove on a commercial for Rent.com recently, so hopefully he left by choice and not forced out by a heartless NBC executive. We're thinking about you, JB.
