RIP Last Comic Standing 2003-2009


After six seasons and 59 episodes, NBC laid to rest its hit or miss reality television series Last Comic Standing. This was a show that showed potential but never really took off. It was just there. Sometimes funny, most of the time corny and dragging. Comedy is hard. Finding great original material is harder. How can it compete with American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance or Dancing With the Stars?

Not sure if this is temporary or if they’re planning a comeback in the near future. For now the show is officially canceled and will not be going back for Season 7. That makes Iliza Shlesinger, the “Last Comic Standing” indeed!

The show was created and produced by Peter Engel. Hosts included Jay Mohr (Seasons 1-3), Anthony Clark (Season 4), Bill Bellamy (Seasons 5-6) and British TV host Fearne Cotton (Season 6)

Ant’s Last Rants and he couldn’t have shown it best through the clips why the show had to end… (bet he didn’t know at the time this was going to be his last episode!)
