TBS has ordered a brand new game show series from In Living Color alum, Marlon Wayans. Funniest Wins is a comedy competition show pitting professionals and YouTube amateurs against each other to see who can, quite simply, be funny. “Each week competitors will learn the ins and outs of a particular comedy style. They will then put what they’ve learned to the test in that week’s main competition,” a press release from TBS stated. The season ends with one winner who will receive a cash price and a chance to star in an online series for Wayans’ www.WhatTheFunny.com. TBS has ordered eight episodes of the show that will feature stand-ups, sketch, improv, musical parodies, and digital shorts. Wayans will serve as host and executive producer.
