Airing tonight on NBC, LAST COMIC STANDING is a compelling comedy competition that pits the greatest stand-up comedians in America against each other in an effort to win an incredible prize package worth $250,000 and a development deal for their own TV show.
This season, new judge NORM MacDONALD joins returnees ROSEANNE BARR and KEENAN IVORY WAYANS as the arbiters of comedic taste and critically acclaimed stand-up ANTHONY JESELNIK takes over as host.
Emmy-nominated for his work on A NIGHT OF TOO MANY STARS: AN OVERBOOKED CONCERT FOR AUTISM EDUCATION, ANTHONY JESELNIK first received national attention for his stand-out performances on the Comedy Central roasts of DONALD TRUMP, ROSEANNE BARR and CHARLIE SHEEN. Since then, he’s been in constant demand and an audience favorite.
We recently sat down with JESELNIK to talk about the success of LAST COMIC STANDING and he opened up about what he thinks it takes to win the comp and why doing the show is beneficial to any stand-up.
LAST COMIC STANDING airs Wednesday nights on NBC.
