Hosted by Curb Your Enthusiasm’s JB Smoove, Last Comic Standing returns with three new judges (Russell Peters, Roseanne Barr, Keenen Ivory Wayans) who definitely know their craft. This season will feature the top 100 comics in the U.S. trying out for the top 20 spots. The winner of Last Comic Standing will receive an NBC talent deal and a scripted project that will be developed by Universal Television.
The two hour premiere for Last Comic Standing, which is executive produced by Wanda Sykes (who’s also a Curb vet) is set for tonight (NBC, 9 pm et/pt).
In the video below, Roseanne Barr and Russell Peters talk about the importance of nailing down a four and a half minute stand-up routine, no matter what level of experience the comic possesses.
To check out why Roseanne sees Last Comic Standing as “very punk rock,” go to video located on our sister site Deepest Dream.
