Someone give judge Natasha Leggero a family size bottle of Prozac so she either overdoses or stops that inane cackling for no reason. That's one problem solved. Last Comic You Can Stand is back, oh god, for a seventh time. In addition to Leggero, judges are Greg Giraldo and Andy Kindler aka who l and who 2. Craig Robinson is the MC.

Last Comic You Can Stand is not at all what it presents itself to be. Episode 1 featured established comics like Laurie Kilmartin (moved on), Shane Mauss, and Jimmy Dore. Mauss and Dore vanished. Mauss has a Comedy Central deal and Jimmy Dore already has a CD and DVD out titled Citizen Jimmy.

I am still amazed this show survived its second season where Brett Butler and Drew Carey walked off because they found out the show was rigged. Nobody told them the show's producers were also voting behind the scenes and some of the contestants were their client.

I still get the feeling something is not quite kosher with this show and not only because comics who have been around for ten or so years are competing against comics whose last audience was in their basement.

Another irritating element to this supposed contest is comics you did not see in the auditions suddenly show up for the elimination round.

Last Comic You Can Stand sucked the first time around and it sucks for a seventh time.
