Last Comic Standing house had “claws out” drama, “blood on the floor.”
NBC’s Last Comic Standing, which debuts Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET, follows 10 comics living in a house and competing for a Comedy Central special and a contract with NBC. Judges for the show include Phyllis Diller, Buddy Hackett and Joe Rogan. Host Jay Mohr tells Zap2it.com that he “wanted to be in the mix and create tension and drama… but it became clear very early that I was not needed. … We were in the house about five minutes before there was blood on the floor. … These are comics, they know how to take their claws out and they know how to use them.”
