‘Comedy Knockout’ is a reality comedy game show that first premiered on April 21, 2016, on TruTV. Joe DeMaio and Carrie Havel are the directors while the show is created by Mo Mandel, a producer, and writer, best known for ‘Love Bites’ and ‘Partners’. The series features talented up and coming stand-up comedians, who try to win the maximum number of points by impressing the live audience through their sets.
The frequent theme of the show is roasting, along with improv sets and the regular stand-ups. Roasting is a type of humor, where a particular individual becomes the subject of a joke and the jokes are mostly in an insulting and humiliating form. The more humiliating the joke is, the better you are able to roast.
Comedy Central is famous for producing annual roasts, where celebrities like Joan Rivers, David Hasselhoff, Donald Trump, Charlie Sheen, Roseanne Barr, James Franco, Justin Bieber, Rob Lowe, Bruce Willis, and Alec Baldwin have been the subjects. Needless to say, the format has appealed to the audience vastly, and taking advantage of the same, ‘Comedy Knockout’ features a similar plot.
After three seasons of laughter, fans are now wondering whether ‘Comedy Knockout’ Season 4 is in the works. We delve into that after sharing some details of the series.
