Last Comic Standing 2014 Tour Announced
Over the years, my husband and I have watched A LOT of reality show competition shows. Really, it’s kind of embarrassing; Big Brother, American Idol, The Voice, America’s Got Talent, The Sing Off, So You Think You Can Dance, Top Chef, The X Factor, Project Runway and so many (many) more. Writing all those out is shocking to see how much time I’ve wasted in my life! At any rate, we don’t watch nearly as many anymore. Limited time and interest really plays into that. One show we still watch that we are very excited that came back on TV this summer is Last Comic Standing. The competition for the best comedian in the country. This is the eight season of the show after it took a 3 year hiatus after one of it’s judges, Greg Giraldo, committed suicide. But, it’s back and funnier than ever. Judges this year include Roseanne Barr, Keenan Ivory Wayans and Russell Peters. Wanda Sykes is the producer of the show.
Just this week, it was announced that Last Comic Standingwill be headed out on a length tour this tour. The tour will kick off in Tuscon, AZ on Sept. 16 and will wrap up Nov. 22 in Beverly Hills, CA. There will be over 50 cities visited in that time!
Some of the contestants that have been on the show have gone on to have very successful careers like Iliza Shlesinger,Amy Schumer, Ralphie May, Doug Benson, Ant, Lavell Crawford, Alonzo Bodden, Matt Kirshen and so many more. Fun fact, Gabriel Iglesias was the first person in the history of the show to ever be thrown out and DQ’d.
