TRIAL BY LAUGHTER RETURNS TO COMIX!
COMEDIANS COMPETE IN FRONT OF A JURY OF PEERS AND FANS
NEW YORK, NY –Trial by Laughter a show with seven comedians competing for the approval of fellow comedians, audience members, and fans on the web, all while vying for cash prizes and media exposure comes to Comix January 29th.
Seven acts, known as "defendants," perform five minute sets. Defendants consist of comedians of all levels, from complete newbies to international headliners and are pre-screened by the producers to ensure that the audience gets the best show possible.
"We really wanted to do something different," said Executive Producer and co-creator Steve Hofstetter. ‘Last Comic Standing’ is for seasoned veterans, and many new talent nights in the city don't have any actual industry watching. Trial by Laughter is a show for talented comics who just need a break."
The show also features two guests and two headliners, as well as regular hosts Steve Hofstetter and Moody McCarthy. The winner chosen by an equal combination of judge, audience, & web votes, is invited back to compete again on the following show.
A three-camera shoot, Trial by Laughter features broadcast partners like National Lampoon Radio (XM), the forthcoming Comedy Express TV network, and LiveVideo.com. All headliners will stay after the show to answer Defendants’ questions, and a member of Programming for Comix, will be watching every show.
