Stand-Up Smackdown!

New and emerging stand-up comics face off against each other in front of a panel of judges eager to provide unsolicited advice and even more unsolicited scores. One winner will be selected to return for the next show, and the rest will be sent to the great comedy venue in the sky. It's "The Voice" without the spinning chairs or singing. It's "American Idol" without the manufactured drama or singing. It's "The Glee Project" without everything relating to Glee or singing.

Hosted by John Frusciante
Judged hilariously by Brian Cichocki (Caroline's, Stand-Up New York) and Shannon Coffey
