Supreme Court of Comedy is an American television comedy series produced by The Laugh Factory and True Entertainment which is a pseudo judge show with Dom Irrera as the judge and several comedians or actors playing lawyers who preside over real small claims court cases, delivering rulings that are used for entertainment purposes only.
The series aired in the USA on DirecTV from 2008-2010. There are 34 half-hour episodes in three seasons.
Supreme Court of Comedy premiered in South Africa on DStv's Sony Entertainment Television (SONY) channel on Saturday 8 September 2012, at 19h50. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

America's funniest comedians return to The World Famous Laugh Factory courtroom when the third season of Supreme Court of Comedy premieres.
Comedians Kevin Nealon and Jamie Kennedy kick off the third installment of the series when they take opposing sides in a dispute over designer D-cup bras.
The 13-episode series is The People's Court with a twist, as everyday citizens with real-life small claims disputes forgo the traditional legal system to have their cases tried by America's top comedians inside the World Famous Laugh Factory in Los Angeles, California.
Veteran comic Dom Irrera returns as presiding "Chief Justice," delivering verdicts that are not only hilarious, but surprisingly just.
On the other end of the gavel, comedians Tom Arnold, Kevin Nealon, Jamie Kennedy, Jeff Garlin, Paul Rodriguez, Louie Anderson, Bobby Lee, Paul Mooney, Daniel Tosh, Russell Peters, Tony Rock, Harland Williams, Maz Jobrani, Andy Kindler, Aries Spears and Bryan Callen, tackle the legal system as the court's "counselors."
Season 3's docket promises to be even funnier - and stranger - than ever with the featured comedians representing real life litigants in cases such as "Her D Cup Runneth Over," "Body Slammed and Backstabbed," "Couching Tiger, Hidden Moocher" and "Burned by Rubber," among others.
From opening statements to closing arguments (with a few wardrobe malfunctions in between) and surprise star witnesses including legendary comedienne Phyllis Diller, the series proves to be the most hilarious and unpredictable courtroom in America.
The half-hour, unscripted series is executive produced by The Laugh Factory and True Entertainment, an Endemol Company.
