Some of our favorite stand up comedy friends are going to be competing on a brand new truTV show- Comedy Knockout this spring. Kurt Metzger, Jim Norton, Dave Hill, and Liza Treyger are just a few of the names we’re excited to see go head to head with one liners, captions, and more.
Comedy Knockout is a new game show that incorporates some of the best parts of shows like Joking Off, @midnight and even a touch of Impractical Jokers. Stand Up comedians compete to deliver the funniest lines, and with the loser gets punished, by delivering a humiliating soliloquy announcing their shameful loss.
The reason why we’re so excited is the lineup. So many of these names are people you wouldn’t necessarily expect to be a part of a comedy game show. Kurt Metzger writes for Inside Amy Schumer and just co-starred in Louis CK’s Horace and Pete along with Liza Treyger. Leonard Outzs is one of our favorite emerging comics in New York right now- he’s one of the names you might not know yet but you will and you will love him. Kerry Coddett is another rising star, who we first saw on MTV2’s Joking Off, and we are confident she is going to be a big star not only in comedy but on film and tv. Dave Hill who is one of the smartest sharpest guys in the business and we can’t wait to see him go head to head with some of the other names on this list. Nimesh Patel hosts one of the hippest comedy shows in the city on Monday nights, and he’s already making lists of comedians to watch. Jordan Carlos went from being a member of the Colbert Show to the Nightly Show Sherrod Small is already known as one of the fastest comics working, Yamaneika Saunders, Monroe Martin, Kevin Barnett, Chris Distefano, Jamie Lee, Arden Myrin, Sean Patton, and Sean Donnelly are names you already know and love, and so do we, and that’s just the beginning.

It’s all hosted by Damien Lemon, and premieres April 21st on truTV at 10:30pm.
