“THE GREAT AMERICAN JOKE OFF”
Fridays (9:30 – 10:00 p.m. ET) on The CW
THE GREAT AMERICAN JOKE OFF is a new comedy series from the creators of the legendary comedy improv series “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” Hosted by Dulcé Sloan, each episode of THE GREAT AMERICAN JOKE OFF pitches six of the world’s funniest stand-up comedians into a celebration of wisecracks and one liners where the rounds go quickly, but the laughter never lets up.
The format is simple: major comic talents such as Natasha Leggero, Joe List, Moshe Kasher, and Mark Normand push the envelope, and each other’s buttons, as they compete across a variety of joke-telling genres and comedic scenarios with Dulcé deciding which team has won each round based on who she thinks has been the funniest. The teams are tested on their skill in everything from crafting joke set ups, creating punchlines and providing photo captions to performing solo spots, dropping risqué innuendos and ranting about life’s petty irritations. THE GREAT AMERICAN JOKE OFF presents comedy as an art form where ultimately, it’s not about the winning, it’s about making you laugh.
THE GREAT AMERICAN JOKE OFF is created and executive produced by Dan Patterson, with Jed Leventhall and Derek Van Pelt serving as executive producers.
