In each episode, host Damien Lemon ("Guy Code") sends three comics into a battle of high stakes comedic gameplay. With points doled out based on the audience's applause, it's all about one-upmanship as competitors attempt to land massive comedy blows and whip the rowdy crowd into a frenzy of raucous laughter. The whole time, the comedians throw roast-like, rapid-fire jabs at each other to knock their opponents off balance. Every show ends with one comedian crowned champion, one eliminated and one ultimately forced to face the crowd and apologize for going down in shameful defeat. Guest comedians this season will include Jim Norton, Sherrod Small, Kevin Barnett, Jamie Lee and many more.
"Comedy Knockout" is produced by Embassy Row with 3 Arts Entertainment, with Michael Davies, Amanda McPhillips, Julia Cassidy, Mo Mandel, Tim Fornara, Josh Lieberman and Greg Walter serving as executive producers. Series concept is by Mo Mandel.
