Trivia

Unless all four vote unanimously on a contestant, the "celebrity talent scouts"' votes do not actually count. A panel of four other judges, consisting of network executives and producers, also casts votes (unanimously) after consulting backstage. This means that if three celebrity panelists vote for one contestant but all four non-celebrity judges do not, that contestant will not make it through. This was brought to light when panelists Drew Carey and 'Brett Butler' objected to contestants not being voted through when they, along with panelist 'Anthony Clark', had voted for them. See more »

Last Comic Standing is not what it appears to be
7 March 2010 | by Mama-CSee all my reviews

I run a group to stop comedian exploitation and I just spent the past 2 months hearing horror stories from comedians who attempted to audition for, "Last Comic Standing." If they don't have a GOOD agent, then they don't even get a chance to audition so more than 80% of the comedians who turn up are rejected before they can show anyone that they have talent! If they do make it to an audition, I was told that it's "pre-determined" if they get a second chance. So what the TV audience sees is NOT the best comics in the US.

If the comics do make it to the show, then most of them don't get IMDb credits. I know this because I did the credits for all 6 seasons of, "Last Comic Standing" and I don't get paid for doing the Producers' job. It's really a disgrace. A month ago, I asked, "Last Comic Standing 7" on Facebook why the Producers aren't giving IMDb credits and I was banned from their Facebook Page!!! I am not a comedian so I do not have a personal stake in this. I just want people to know the truth. I don't like seeing ANYONE getting exploited and that's why I've been helping the comedians. Comedians get exploited on HBO, BET, TvOne and other cable networks but NBC is a BIG THREE network so those in charge should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this exploitation to happen.

Please watch this video of a comedian who was victimized: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMb4-hyet_Y
