1. You've seen the best from season 2. But which of the comics
of Last Comic Standing is the best period? That's what you,
the viewing public, have to decide.

Episode 3 - September 7
We say good bye to two more comics, but one team will
get another $50,000. It is also revealed that the grand
prize for this competition is $250,000 - and the title
of the Super Last Comic Standing.
Enough pleasure, it's time for business. The winning
team is.... Season TWO, as they are now up to $100,000
in goodies. There will be two comics announced, and one
of those 2 comics will be going bye-bye. From season 2 -
Kathleen Madigan and Corey Holcomb. From season one -
Sean Kent and Tere Joyce. One of the comics in each
pairing is safe - the other one is toast.
It's time to go back into the War Room. This time, the
comics will be pairing off into their own teams of four.
All of the power comedians want to go up together -
until they realize that one person in each group it
getting eliminated. The groups change strategy and set
up, while Tess announces, "To another $50,000 that we're
not going to win!" Heh.
Here are your teams - Alonzo says that his lineup will
be Tammy, Gary, Jay and Alonzo (with Todd, ANT, John and
Kathleen/Corey in the wings) and Tess counters with
Rich, Rob, Ralphie and Tess (with Dat, Geoff, Dave and
Tere/Sean in the back). I actually think that LCS1 has
the edge, where they can sacrifice Rob and Tere/Sean in
the next two weeks, while LCS2 will lose one of their
top people from the first group, with a noticeably
weaker back set next week).
We start it off with Alonzo, who talks about the used
car business and car insurance. "I have fantasies about
burning down an insurance company so that have to make a
claim." It's traditional Alonzo, and he is his usual
He gets countered by Ralphie May, who starts by thanking
everyone for the e-mails to his dad. He talks about
living in Toronto, where it was negative 42 degrees and
he couldn't find his nuts. She talks about a chattering
prostitute offering oral. He also makes fun of people
trying to be as fat as him. He also goes after the
Mexicans. "You didn't invent the low rider - that was
invented by four fat people going to Roscoe's." It's
cute, but not up to his usual stuff and I am wondering
just how much of a toll his dad's death has had.
Tammy wants to create a reality show called "What the
Hell is wrong with you." We are doing a celebrity
version, starring the people who let their kids stay at
Michael Jackson's place. She also talks about the
hypnotic power of Krispy Kremes and The Donald's Hair.
"He is so rich and his hair is so bad that if he bought
a monkey and put it on his head he's look better." This
is the Tammy that I am used to - comedy without needing
to go Italian.
With Tess, I am used to sexy comedy, and Tess... well...
uhhh.. talks about a coalition for health and hygiene,
with people looking like a firecracker exploded in
someone's mouth. She talks about white boys who want to
go hiking. "Why don't you go hike over to that liquor
store and get me a slurpee?" This is traditional Tess,
which means that I didn't like her that much. She also
didn't get rolling until the end of the skit, and that
I don't like Gary Gulman that much either, but based on
some good sets from last week, maybe he will change my
mind. He doesn't. "If you are 26 and still wake up in
Star Wars sheets, the force is not with you." He praises
the creation of 2 and says how wonderful it is to
abbreviate two letter words. Huh? That didn't get much
applause and Gary could be in trouble.
Speaking of trouble, Rob Cantrell also needs to raise
his game. He lowers it instead. "I'm so broke, I'm
writing my postcards on the back of stamps." He talks
about smuggling houseplants, adding that it's the first
time that he saw people sell plants that would not get
them high. He wants to legalize marijuana and says that
Ben Franklin, with thick glasses, long hair, and the
desire to fly a kite in a thunderstorm. When all else
fails, he repeats his inner child skit from LCS1 and it
may be time to put him out of his misery.
Jay London is here to salvage the show for me. "I was
filing a suit for impotency. My lawyer told me to drop
the case because it wouldn't stand up in court... I came
from a poor country, my pictures were underdeveloped...
Do you see women's panty hose? They have a crotch panel.
How do I get on that panel." It wasn't as good as last
week, but it's his usual Jay stuff, which makes me very
Finally, it's Rich Vos, who talks about the stupidity of
people. He goes after people who can't spell his last
name. "She spells my last name V-L-S... yeah, my name
has no vowels in it... I hope Jared from Subway gets his
weight back. 'I lost 300 pounds from eating subs'. What
were you eating before? Cars?...I have to go out hiking
with Tess now." There's a reason why he's one of my
favorite comics - he can be mean without being vulgar. A
great set by Vos.
We go back to last week, where either Tere or Sean and
Kathleen or Corey are toast. From LCS 2, the person
leaving is.... Corey. and Joining him will be... Tere',
as that choice is getting booed by the audience. Any
surprises here? Nope, as I listed both of them in the
14:59 (meaning one more second of fame left) row.
Let's see who's there as we get to my rankings for this
Top Ranked - Tammy, Rich
Good - Jay, Alonzo
Eh - Tess, Ralphie
14:59 - Rob, Gary
This one is going to be tough. LCS2 probably wins this
one and Rob is probably gone for LCS1, but LCS2 is going
to be tougher. Gary had the worst set, but he has gotten
the votes, which leaves Tammy or Jay in trouble - which
shouldn't be the case, since they both had nice sets.
We'll see next week which team winds up getting their
bread buttered - and who winds up as toast.
