Season 6

Last Comic Standing is an American reality competition television series created and produced by Peter Engel in which stand-up comedians compete in weekly elimination challenges until one is left standing, who receives a development contract with the NBC television network as first prize.

The series premiered in the USA on NBC on 1 June, 2003.

The series premiered in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Series channel on Thursday 27 April 2006, at 21h00. It was moved to DStv's Mzansi Magic channel from the seventh season and later aired on SABC2. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast times and dates.

Season 6 aired on M-Net Series from 3 February to 9 June, 2010, on Wednesdays at 19h00. It moved to Wednesdays at 19h30 from its 14th episode (5 May, 2010) due to a channel-wide scheduling overhaul. There are 19 episodes in the sixth season.

Season 6

Last Comic Standing returns for a sixth season with host Bill Bellamy and special correspondent/popular UK personality Fearne Cotton stepping up the search for the funniest comedian on the planet.

This season, a parade of comedy stars from past and present hit shows also will participate for the first time ever - serving as talent scouts in lively audition shows that will air as the first few episodes.

Helping to find the funny this season are talent scouts Angela Kinsey, Oscar Nunez, Brian Baumgartner and Kate Flannery (The Office); Dave Foley (Thank God You're Here! Newsradio); Neil Flynn (Scrubs); George Wendt and John Ratzenberger (Cheers); Richard Belzer (Law & Order: SVU); Steve Schirripa (The Tonight Show With Jay Leno); Kathy Najimy (Veronica's Closet); and French Stewart (Third Rock From the Sun).

Josh Gomez (Chuck), Lonny Ross and Keith Powell (30 Rock) also serve as talent scouts, along with Richard Kind and Fred Willard (Mad About You) and Alfonso Ribeiro (The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air).

Top comedians from more than 20 countries - including England, Australia, Scotland, Sweden, South Africa, India, New Zealand, Norway, Japan and Israel - audition during the international search, which will take talent scouts to LA, NY, Toronto, Minneapolis, Houston, Tempe, San Francisco, Nashville and Miami.

Plus, for the first time ever on the show, Bill Bellamy goes to eight additional cities on his own - including Boston, Denver, Seattle, Detroit, Honolulu and Atlanta - surprising the best comics at local venues with a direct pass to perform for the scouts in the closest audition city.

After the audition search is over, the best of the best will come to Las Vegas to perform for a huge crowd at the Paris Las Vegas, where the top 12 comedy acts will be chosen as finalists.

They'll move on to the challenge rounds for a comedy showdown week by week, until the funniest comics return to the Paris Las Vegas for the finals and finale.

Then America will vote to decide who will be the Last Comic Standing and win a $250,000 grand prize including an exclusive talent deal with NBC, a brand new Honda and a starring appearance in Jubilee! at Bally's Las Vegas.
