America\'s most compelling comedy competition is back May 22 when NBC\'s Emmy Award-nominated series \"Last Comic Standing\" returns starring three new celebrity judges - comedy icons Roseanne Barr (\"Roseanne,\" \"The Office\") and Keenen Ivory Wayans (\"Scary Movie,\" \"In Living Color\"), as well as international comic sensation Russell Peters (\"Comics Without Borders,\" \"Russell Peters Presents\"). JB Smoove (\"Curb Your Enthusiasm,\" \"The Millers\") is on board as the new host.\n\nThe lively laugh fest resumes its search for the funniest comic in the country with innovative format changes, surprise celebrity guests and unexpected twists guaranteed to deliver the funniest season yet. Season 8 will open up with auditions, this time by invitation only.\n\nThe top 100 comics in America will compete for the top 20 spots. These 20 comics will compete in a semifinal round, and as the best of the best will emerge, the top 10 move into the compelling challenge rounds. In this phase, they will compete in different comedy disciplines - sketch, improv and stand-up - to prove themselves individually and in teams. Then the funniest of all will take the coveted title of \"Last Comic Standing,\" winning a prize package that includes an NBC talent deal and a half-hour scripted project to be developed by Universal Television.
