'Last Comic Standing' Season 8 Finale Recap: And the Winner Is...
Well gang, we've arrived. Tonight is the two-hour finale of Last Comic Standing, where the winner of this televised shindig will be announced. I'll admit, I'm still pretty salty over Joe Machi being eliminated last week, but hopefully that won't tarnish my enjoyment tonight.

The narrator discusses our top three comedians in a hilarious way. Rod Man, Lachlan Patterson, and Nikki Carr are introduced wearing superhero capes and masks, soaring high on laughs and pressure. But first, remember how we started with 100 contestants and had a bunch of mentors? I'm sure priceless memories from the season will serve as great filler tonight. 

Jb dances on stage like a robot, while stating that the word of the day is "finale!" Since this is the finale, the judges are introduced on stage. Keenen Ivory Wayans, Russell Peters, and Roseanne make their way into the audience to slap hands with audience members and give out hugs.

Oh my gosh, are we at the final four already? Was there some kind of elimination I totally missed? You guys got a recap last week, right? It's really true -- we're looking at our final four contestants, one who'll eventually receive the glorious title of Last Comic Standing.

We start the show with a few sweaty confessionals from our comedians: Lachlan Patterson, Nikki Carr, Joe Machi, and Rod Man. Not only will this episode be a competition for who gets the most laughs, but it'll be the episode that'll put three of our comics in the series finale next week. 

Jb Smoove comes out and introduces the judges. Russell Peters, Keenen Ivory Wayans, and Roseanne seem to be all smiles.

'Last Comic Standing' Recap: Going Head to Head With Ellen
Oh my gosh, you guys. The moment is finally here. It's the Ellen episode of Last Comic Standing, and they've been promoting this episode for what feels like 5 months.

When we last left our comics, they were recuperating from their first challenge -- sketch comedy. Only eight comedians are left: Rod Man, Rocky Laporte, Karlous Miller, Lachlan Patterson, Nikki Carr, DC Benny, Monroe Martin, and Joe Machi. The finalists will be mentored by Wanda Sykes this episode, and judged by Ellen --as well as Ellen's audience. And you know the audience over at The Ellen DeGeneres Show is just vicious.

The second challenge will be called "Who's Ready For The Big Time?" and Jb Smoove breaks the news that the comedians will be working with Ellen. "For those of you who don't know, a pre-interview is a process you have to go through with one of the producers of the show,

Legit Review: What's In the Bag?

  • TVfanatic
One of the reasons I've really enjoyed Legit has been that despite the characters' mishaps and flaws there has still been an endearing quality about them. More so, the situations themselves have been pretty basic but relatable enough from losing weight to taking an airplane trip to becoming a role model.

While this particular episode did make me chuckle a few times, it really turned into an over-the-top adventure that stepped further away from the exaggerated reality it does so well in.

I really wish we got some more scenes with Jim's comedian pals Brad Williams and Lachlan Patterson. They had such short screen time, but already from their quick interactions and party participation, I was eager to see what else they could get involved in. I hope that they come back again.

Instead, the episode switched gears letting Jim hook up with famous and attractive Jenny from the show "Hey La!
