It’s a way to get a belly laugh going and win a new car, all in one! This season’s Last Comic Standing is including a new feature, something they’re calling Last Comic Driving.
Each week for 10 weeks, comics who did not make the final cut on the show will give their funniest routines while sitting in the passenger seat of a new Honda Pilot–the car which will ultimately be won by the grand prize winner of the series.
Viewers can watch the “Comic in the Car,” and then go online to vote for their favorite. Each vote will get you an entry in a sweepstakes to win your own brand new Honda Pilot! The winner of Last Comic Driving will appear in the season finale of Last Comic Standing (August 7th) and will win a cash prize provided by Honda.
Last Comic Standing is set to premiere on Thursday, May 22nd at 9:30 PM (ET). The first episode will follow Law and Order’s Richard Belzer and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’s Steve Schirripa as they hold auditions in New York City. Also, Mad About You’s Fred Willard and Veronica’s Closet’s Kathy Najimy will be holding auditions in Tempe, Arizona.
Viewer votes will decide who will win Last Comic Standing. The winner will receive $250,000, a talent deal with NBC, a new Honda Pilot, and a starring appearance in Jubilee! at Bally’s Las Vegas.
