Fahrenheit LCS 2 video examines Last Comic Standing 2 editing, production.
One of the comics from Last Comic Standing 2 has produced a short film called “Fahrenheit LCS 2” that, as Defamer points out, us “sure to roil any reality TV fan that’s unaware that television producers often employ misleading editing tactics to arrive at a greater—or more narratively compelling—truth.” Cringe Humor has the video (third item), and the site says that comic “Sharon Houston and Mickey Ramos are the minds behind this clip that is sure to piss many people off.” The nearly seven minute video largely snarky comments, but it does reveal information from Tammy’s real last name to Jay Mohr’s appearance in front of a green screen, not Times Square. It also focuses on the series’ editing. Showing one competitor’s set, the video says “no one laughed” and says that a reaction “shot [was] taken from another comic’s set.” Comic Sharon Houston also shows her routine, which she says “edited out all my punchlines.” Later, it suggests the series faked footage from a strip club using crew members, showing a comic who says she’s a stripper dancing in fake strip clubs for the show’s P.A.s.”
