'Last Comic Standing' reveals last five Top 10 seventh-season finalists
By Reality TV World staff, 07/06/2010
Last Comic Standing revealed the identities of its final five Top 10 seventh-season finalists during Monday night's broadcast of the NBC reality competition series.
James Adomian from Los Angeles, CA, Tommy Johnagin from Benton, IL, Laurie Kilmartin from Walnut Creek, CA, Maronzio Vance from Charlotte, NC, and Roy Wood Jr. from Birmingham, AL were all revealed to be finalists by host Craig Robinson at the conclusion of the episode.
"Me being one of the Top 10 finalists in Last Comic Standing is a fantastic honor and it is something that is very exciting for America," Adomian said.
"I feel really excited about making the final 10," Johnagin added. "I made the semifinals three years ago and so now I'm in the part that I'm not used to -- I've never done this, this is a big deal for my career."
Monday night's Last Comic Standing broadcast featured the season's second group of semifinalists performing for the seventh-season judging panel of Natasha Leggero, Greg Giraldo and Andy Kindler -- who then determined the final five finalists.
"When Craig called my name I was relieved like you wouldn't believe," Wood said after making the Top 10. "But it was bittersweet because they were my friends and they were walking off the stage, and that hurts. But I wouldn't give them back the opportunity to be the last comic standing for the world."
"I was shocked," Kilmartin said. "There's been many times in the past five years where I've been 'I should just quit,' but I'm glad I didn't because it turns out some part of my head -- the part that keeps telling me to go up on stage -- was right."
"When Craig called my name, I wanted to look at him like, 'Are you serious, are you joking? Don't play with me like that, my family's watching,'" Vance said.
