Iliza, an audience favorite early on, managed to win the competition. In her first sets, especially her second on the show, we found her quite amusing. Not stellar, but good enough to send home the other comics. It was clear from our polls, and from just having a funny bone, that the true winner of this competition was Jim Tavare. Our polls had him winning by nearly 3-1 over Iliza. He had better sets, was more consistent and more professional.
We did express a concern last week was that Jim could lose the vote to one of the other four because the voters were primarily from America, and might vote in favor of the home team. It is a shame though, because America got beat hands down, and we voted through an act that just was not funny.
