"Last Comic Standing": Which City is Funniest?

"Last Comic Standing": Which City is Funniest?

NBC's stand-up comedy show "Last Comic Standing" returns tonight for its fifth season. If you're like me, you might have just done a double-take at the words "fifth season" — I honestly had no idea the show had been around for so long. This year, "Last Comic Standing" is changing things up by giving the hosting gig to Bill Bellamy (who will always be Mr. "MTV Jams" to me) and adding a $250,000 cash prize to the package of goodies awaiting the winner.

The judges traveled to eight cities around the world to audition contestants, and the results of some of those open calls will be seen on tonight's two-hour premiere. But videos culling the best and worst from the audition cities are already on YouTube, so we can start guessing which city will be the funniest.

I usually stay away from "Last Comic Standing" because I don't want to watch a lot of embarrassingly awkward jokes, but some of these clips at least made me chuckle. I liked the comics from Tempe the most, but that's probably because I watched their clips first. To check out the rest, just click over to London, San Antonio, Sydney, New York, Los Angeles and Montreal. Curiously, Minneapolis was the only audition city not to make it to YouTube so far.

Will you be watching the show? And, based on these clips, which city deserves the most laughs?

Buzz, that's cuz we're just not very funny here in Mnpls. We can't sing, either, remember Idol? Haha. Actually, if they got some of our local Acme guys, it would have made for a good show. I know what you mean about the awkward jokes, but we'll probably watch this.

I saw Josh and Ty at my sisters college and although they did have a couple of the same jokes from the show .. they definitely had a lot of funny new ones. I'm a little upset (from watching the cities) that there wasn't many women!! c'mon ladies - come out and show up some of these lame dudes!

I have seen two of the old contestants at a comedy club (not the same night) and they are pretty funny, but a lot of their material was the same as on the show.
