We told you back in February that Marlon Wayans had sold and will host a comedy competition on TBS. Wayans’ show has released the names of the contestants competing on the brand new show. Funniest Wins will pit 10 rising comedians against in weekly challenges teaching them different comedy styles like improv, musical parodies and hidden-camera pranks. The goal of the competition is to find the funniest multi-talented comedian. The winner will receive a $100,000 cash prize and the chance to star in an online series for Wayans’ WhatTheFunny.com. The show slightly differs from NBC’s Last Comic Standing by focusing on finding a comedian who has multiple comedic tools that could translate to, say, creating a television show. The real contest will be to see if two different comedy competitions can survive on television in the same summer. Check out the comedians of Funniest Wins below:
Funniest Wins premieres on TBS on June 20.
