NBC announced today that Last Comic Standing will premiere its eighth season on Thursday, May 22, 2014. It has been four years since the stand-up comedy competition last crowned a victor in the summer of 2010.
For the re-launch, a new panel of judges will make their debut including Roseanne Barr, Keenan Ivory Wayans, and Russell Peters. Some format changes are in store as well, such as the audition round now being by invitation only.
