NBC Is Reviving ‘Last Comic Standing’ Again, Produced by Wanda Sykes


NBC is bringing Last Comic Standing back yet again. The network will be producing a new season of the standup comedy competition series set to air during the summer of 2014 and to be executive produced by Wanda Sykes, THR reports. This will be the eighth season of the show. A host has not yet been named. The last season aired in 2010.

Since it started its run in 2003, Last Comic Standing has only aired during the summer and has given exposure to comedians like Amy Schumer, Doug Benson, James Adomian, Gabriel Iglesias, and Todd Glass, all of whom competed at earlier points in their careers.
