Rocky from Chicago, IL, was eliminated after he took the stage -- along with four other comics -- to deliver a stand-up comedy routine for Last Comic Standing judges Roseanne Barr, Keenen Ivory Wayans and Russell Peters.

The judges chose to oust Rocky in favor of the following comics: Joe Machi from State College, PA, who currently resides in New York, NY; Lachlan Patterson from Vancouver, B.C., who currently resides in Venice Beach, CA; Nikki Carr from Bronx, NY; and Rod Man from Villa Rica, GA, who currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.

Jay Leno served as the week's mentor during "The Title Round."

Next week's elimination will determine the Top 3 comics who will compete in the eighth-season finale.
