Tonight, a new comedy competition will begin on NBC.
The inaugural season of ‘Bring the Funny’ highlights some of the most talented comedians in the world. The show features stand-ups, sketch troupes and comedic variety acts, including solo comics, musicians, magicians, puppeteers, YouTubers, and more who will perform in front of a live audience.
America will have the chance to vote for which act they think is the funniest of the funny with 40 competitors. Three comedy legends are serving as the judges: Chrissy Teigen, Kenan Thompson, and Jeff Foxworthy.
Foxworthy was here on the Coast a few months ago and told News 25 about this new innovative comedy experience. “I think the timing is good and right now people are enjoying the competition format and most of it is with singing, but you have other talents. I don’t know that anybody has really done this with comedy the way that NBC is doing it. As somebody that has made their career in comedy, I am just really excited to be a part of it.”
‘Bring the Funny’ is set to premiere tonight at 9 p.m. central time.
