'Last Comic Standing' cuts Jonathan Thymius, determines Top 5
By Reality TV World staff, 08/03/2010
Last Comic Standing eliminated Jonathan Thymius and determined its Top 5 seventh-season finalists during Monday night's penultimate broadcast of the NBC stand-up comedian competition.
"This is the end of my Last Comic Standing journey, and it's depressing you know, because America didn't vote for me. And I live in America," Thymius joked in a video clip that aired after Last Comic Standing host Craig Robinson revealed he had been eliminated from the competition based on the results of the home viewer voting that followed last Monday's Top 6 performance show.
"I don't know what to do with myself now, I guess I'll just go home and feed the cat."
Next week, Last Comic Standing will crown one of its five remaining finalists -- Mike DeStefano, Felipe Esparza, Tommy Johnagin, Myq Kaplan, and Roy Wood Jr. -- the show's seventh-season champion based on the results of home viewer voting that followed Monday's broadcast.
The winner will receive a $250,000 prize and an exclusive NBC talent deal.
"Remember, this is your last chance to vote," Robinson said. "Next week, don't miss our star-studded finale... we'll find out who will be the last comic standing!"
