"Last Comic Standing" Season 8 returns on NBC with three new celebrity judges — comedy icons Roseanne Barr and Keenen Ivory Wayans, along with international comic sensation Russell Peters — as well as dynamic new host JB Smoove.

The series resumes its search for the funniest comic in the country with innovative format changes, surprise celebrity guests and unexpected twists. The season will open up with hilarious auditions, this time by invitation only.

The top 100 comics in America will vie for 20 spots. These 20 will then compete in a semifinal round and the best of the best will emerge, with the top 10 moving into the compelling challenge rounds. In this phase, they will compete in different comedy disciplines, such as sketch, improv and stand-up, proving themselves both individually and in teams.

Then the funniest of all will take the coveted title of "Last Comic Standing," winning a prize package that includes an NBC talent deal and a half-hour scripted project to be developed by Universal Television.



Emmy Award winner Wanda Sykes and Page Hurwitz ("Wanda Sykes Presents Herlarious,"), who are producing partners at Push It Productions, serve as executive producers for the eighth season, along with Javier Winnik ("The Marriage Ref").

How obvious is is when the judges keep saying "I've seen you perform before, I know how funny you are" that the show is a bit "fixed".
terryflorida says:
The judges are obviously not basing their decisions on what we are seeing because all the truly 'hilarious' comics were passed over. I am so disgusted I refuse to watch this crap any more.
clown2town says:
Kurt was hilarious with the Ga-Ga razor joke, way funnier than either of the chicks selected. Every season the same, a hilarious dude is bumped for an unfunny chick.
