TruTV’s new comedy competition series, Comedy Knockout has found a new way to punish the contestant with the least points. Instead of just being eliminated, Comedy Knockout forces the lowest scoring comic to make a shame speech, apologizing for their poor performance. They haven’t written the speech but they do have to deliver it while embarrassing photos are displayed on the view screen.
Over the weekend, Comedy Knockout released Kurt Metzger’s shame speech, and the photos are spectacular. See Kurt in a banana suit. See Kurt in a mermaid costume. See young Kurt Metgzer. Watch Metzger- who is not only a brilliant writer but also flat out funny on his podcast and performing stand up- apologize for being “as unfunny as I am unbangable” and calls himself “a fruit that is ahead of his time.”
Comedy Knockout airs Thursdays at 10:30pm ET/PT
