"last comic standing," to me, was such a great opportunity because you get to go from wherever you are to the mainstream spotlight. you get to be seen in front of, what, millions of people every wednesday night. and all you had to do was do four minutes of good material. people would remember those jokes forever. you know what i mean? they're etched in stone. so for me, as the host and being a comedian, i felt really connected to the success of all the finalists. and even the people who did bad, i was like, "wow, don't do that again, dog."
