'Last Comic Standing' being revived again by NBC, will air next summer

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 11/14/2013 

Last Comic Standing will reportedly be rising back up again.

NBC is reviving Last Comic Standing -- again -- for broadcast in next summer, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Last Comic Standing will reportedly return for an eighth season next year after three years on hiatus, with the new edition executive produced Wanda Sykes through her new deal with Universal Television's alternative studio. Sykes will work with Page Hurwitz through their Push It Productions production company.

Last Comic Standing's new host and the season's premiere date have yet to be announced. Last Comic Standing has always aired during the summer except for its third edition, which debuted in Fall 2004.

The show's new revival will represent the third time it has been resurrected.

Last Comic Standing's Summer 2006 fourth season aired after a two-year layoff that followed the network's decision to premiere a third, hastily-assembled Fall 2004 edition only weeks after its second season had ended.

NBC then aired new summer seasons of the series in both 2007 and 2008. Last Comic Standing was then canceled again but revived again in 2010 for a new summer edition that was hosted by Craig Robinson.

The prior seasons of Last Comic Standing were hosted by Jay Mohr (Seasons 1-3), Anthony Clark (Season 4), and Bill Bellamy (Season 5-6).

Felipe Esparza won the show's most recent edition in August 2010.
