NBC isn’t bringing Last Comic Standing back, but the network is bringing back competition comedy, and they’re very excited about the new concept. It combines all the comedy types- sketch, variety, stand up, puppets, improv. Based on show descriptions, the reality competition feels a lot like America’s Got Talent, if all the acts had some sort of comedy tie in. We’re expecting the comedy likely to be much broader and mainstream than Last Comic Standing was, aimed more at middle American than hard core fans. Stand Up purists are not likely to be impressed, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t tune in. We see plenty of familiar stand up names on the roster- Jabookie Young White, Ali Siddiq, Erica Rhodes, Ian Lara and Jesus Trejo are just of few of the strong stand ups making the cut, and their inclusion on the show will be enough to inspire us to give the show a watch.
NBC is planning for this show to stick around, announcing performers for their inaugural season today. ..
