Storyline

An updated version of the 1979 game show of the same name. The object of the game was not to laugh at the comedians. Various comedians would have one minute each to make the contestant laugh. If the contestant were able to keep a straight face, he or she would win prize money and go on to face another comedian, and so on until at last they met a joke they couldn't resist.

Funniest Half Hour on TV...
18 March 2004 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

Granted, I haven't seen this show in a few years (because it got cancelled in the 90s) but it used to be the funniest half hour on television.

Basically, there were 3 comedians whose job it was to make the contestants laugh. They had 60 seconds to do a stand-up bit right in front of them, and it they laughed they didn't get points.

Lots of comics who are now known names around the circuits were featured on this show. Greg Fitzsimmons, Jonathan Katz, Kevin Meaney, Steve Sanchez and Ralphie May were all on the show at one point.

What's better than 30 minutes of stand-up every day? I know they won't make this on DVD but Comedy Central should think about it, or maybe release a DVD of all the game shows the station has ever run, because most of the game shows last one or two seasons and then die out (except "Win Ben Stein's Money".
