During the early rounds, there are in fact good comics, but unless they got some cute qualities, they got a snowballs chance. Any controversial material and you are OUT! ...and I think I hurt as much as the discarded comedians, when I see who the crooked judges are letting in.
1 out of my top 4 made it further than the preliminaries. Half+ of the finalists have given me 0 laughs. Several of them have lifted their material elsewhere, something the judges doesn't seem to have problems with.
It is more entertaining than a lot of what else is on TV, but incredibly hard to watch without contemplating what it could have been.
If the producers changed the name of the contest to "Last Clown Standing", all my criticism would loose validity. Maybe an idea?
