"Who Gets the Last Laugh?" review by Suzanne
Season Premiere April 16 10/9c

I watched the first episode, but I did not find it funny at all. It's kind of like the old "Candid Camera" but it's mean. They bring in comedians to set up "funny" situations for people and then see their reaction. These are not funny, though, just mean. I would sue them for some of these "pranks". One gag had them pose as police who pull this guy over in his car, hassle him, have him do silly things, and then plant drugs and threaten to arrest him. Yeah, that's hilarious. Another one has them making this poor temp girl think that some guy stole some money where she works, and she is blamed. Then the guy tries to get her to be quiet about his theft. I mean, this is not funny. Why pick on these people? It is stupid.

They have comedians come in to do the gags, and then the audience votes on whose gags are the funniest. Donald Faison hosts the show, and he is very likable. The comedians include lots of famous people you have heard of or seen on TV like The Big Bang Theory's Kunal Nayyar or D.L. Hughley. It's not worth watching, though....


TBS Amps Up the Funny with Who Gets the Last Laugh? A New Hidden-Camera Comedy Hosted by Donald Faison

The Competition Begins Tuesday, April 16, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)

This spring, TBS is going to put a different twist on hidden-camera comedy with the brand new series Who Gets the Last Laugh? Hosted by Donald Faison (Scrubs), the series will pit some of the industry's best-known comedians and comedy actors against one another to see who can pull the most outrageous practical jokes. Set to premiere Tuesday, April 16, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), Who Gets the Last Laugh? is the brainchild of Punk'd co-creators Jason Goldberg and Ashton Kutcher.

Each week on Who Gets the Last Laugh?, three guest comedians must dream up the funniest and most outrageous pranks possible, then successfully unleash their ideas on an unsuspecting public. A live audience then determines which comedy star really got the last laugh, with the winner earning $10,000 to be given to the charity of their choice.

Among the comedians who have lined up to participate in Who Gets the Last Laugh? are Andy Dick (NewsRadio), Tom Green (The Tom Green Show), D.L. Hughley (The Hughleys), Chris Kattan (The Middle, Saturday Night Live), Bam Margera (Jackass), Bill Bellamy (Any Given Sunday), Charlie Murphy (Chappelle's Show), Cheri Oteri (Saturday Night Live), Alan Thicke (Growing Pains), Nicole Sullivan (MADtv), Kunal Nayyar (The Big Bang Theory) and Finesse Mitchell (Saturday Night Live).

Who Gets the Last Laugh? is produced by Jason Goldberg and Ashton Kutcher's Katalyst in association with Warner Horizon Television. Katalyst co-founder Jason Goldberg serves as executive producer and showrunner.
