Last Comic Standing

Show Summary

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 10 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.

  • Obnoxious Host Who's Always SCREAMING!

    1.0
    Because of the awful SCREAMING host of the show I am forced to Tivo the show and (Advertisers, are you listening?) fast-forward through all the commercials. He is a waste, and your money is not being utilized to its fullest potential.
  • . Smooth Obnoxious

    1.0
    . Smooth is so obnoxious, loud and irritating. He overpowers the show. I am here to hear the comics not listen to his big mouth wanting all the attention. If he is MC of the show next year I will not watch it. He completely takes away from the show.
  • Rosanne ruins the show

    1.0
    I tuned in very excited. Then I saw Roseanne barr. Ughhh. Didn't make it to the second act. Turned if off. She's not funny just a sensationalist. Thanks for ruining the show. There are plenty of funny, talented strong comediennes out there if you were trying to fill a demographic.
  • Rigged

    1.0
    This show is completely rigged!

    I stopped watching after Felipe Esparza was chosen as the winner.

    There were several other comics that season that were far more funny.

    The judges, as comedy veterans, obviously knew this.
  • Why do I keep watching and wasting my time?

    2.5
    This show gets worse and worse every year. What started out as a great idea by Jay Mohr with some really funny comics has turned in to absolute network crap. Every year they go to a major city like New York and select around 7 finalists (most of them mediocre, pretty boys, predictable girls, has beens, or people with connections), and then go to the middle of nowhere and find these unique and hilarious people. They'll select a couple of people then say, "Unfortunately, we only have one spot left."



    The talent level goes down every year. They replaced Mohr with possibly the worst TV host I have ever seen in Anthony Clark who was sweating and shaking and depressing; then replaced him with an experienced host (former MTV VJ), but a pathetic comic in Bill Bellamy. Everything is so contrived and so commercialized. Now the shows feel like PBS fundraisers.moreless

    • This show is a lie!
      I wish there was an option to give a score of 0 to a show. Felipe Esparza was nowhere near the funniest comic. I began to suspect ...
