TruTV Orders Stand-Up Contest Series “Comedy Knockout” Hosted by Damien Lemon

(via The Wrap)

Where the challenges on the earlier seasons of Last Comic Standing didn’t work, maybe they’ll work on Comedy Knockout.

TruTV rebranding as a comedy network has seemingly fared quite well for them and, as such, they’re headed further in that direction. Their latest series order is for a stand-up competition show featuring head-to-head comedy challenges.

NYC comedian Damien Lemon is set to host and a fair amount of roasting is being touted as well.

With Roast Battle’s popularity have spread beyond LA, don’t be surprised to see more of this sort of show pop up on TV more and more.
