    Last comic standing

    Just got caught up to the show on the DVR. Lots of good comics this year, but I'm a little puzzled at the selections for finalists. There are about 5 who should absolutely be there, and the rest left me scratching my head. There are about ten comics left out that were better than those five.

    Re: Last comic standing

    Not that anyone watched evidently but (and blame my DVR for this post being almost a week late) I just watched my last episode of this series. Tommy Johnagin got completely screwed. He was by far the best of the final 5, and the actual winner had about two funny jokes in the whole season.

    Yeah, I kind of agree. Definitely agree on the finalists... and those 5 who shouldn't have been there were the first ones gone. I have no idea whatsoever why they picked them. Complete mystery.

    Tommy was good the whole time. He is obviously a brilliant comedy writer. His bit earlier on in the season talking about how you can "accidentally make a human", but you can't "accidentally make a shed" had me crying laughing so hard. And he was the only comic that had me laughing that much at any time.

    I don't think Felipe was completely undeserving, though.. he was pretty funny. But Tommy probably should've won.

    Re: Last comic standing

    Tommy got screwed no doubt. Both Mikes(Myqs) were better than Fillipe(sp). The guy is in no way funny. Yeah he can tell a joke here and there but I never got into his act. Tommy is hilarious, unlike the winner, two of the judges and the host. Good lord it got painful listening to Craig Robinson at times. And his band...wow...I'd rather listen to someone scratch a chalkboard.

    Felipe had a funny delivery and mannerisms, but his material was horrible.

    C'mon...we all know why Felipe won. Johnagin is pro, one you would go see repeatedly. Felipe...his Mexican-themed schtick will run dry quick.


    There was one?

    Good comics this season...but the show stinks. It's very blah without the challenges, etc.

    Re: Last comic standing

    I respect everyone's comments here, as everyone has their own unique idea of what is funny and what is not funny.

    With that said, this year LCS wasn't so hot. I think the only way to save the show is to move it to HBO. Then it would be brilliant.

    It shouldn't surprise anybody. Remember Dat Pahn won the 1st season.



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?
