Bill Bellamy's Who's Got Jokes conducts a nationwide talent search for America's funniest comedians. In this comedy competition the comics must keep it clean for a chance to win the Who's Got Jokes championship and their very own comedy special on TV One.
The show brings up-and-coming comedians from all around the country and puts them in the middle of showgirls, bright lights and superstars.
Each episode, four contestants have to give a nice, clean three-minute comedy routine. If they curse or go over their time, the "Pope of Comedy" takes away a point.
Who will keep everything in control? Tommy Ford, of Martin fame, who serves as the Pope of Comedy, will make sure the comedians keep their jokes hilarious, but clean - yes, that means no cussin.
Comedian Rodney Perry (Cousin Lump from Johnson Family Vacation) won't let you down as he takes the laughter to the streets with his wacky Man-on-the-Street interviews.
