"Funniest Wins" is a reality competition series on TBS in which comedy heavyweight and WhatTheFunny.com founder Marlon Wayans ("Scary Movie," "In Living Color," "The Wayans Bros."), along with some of his comedian friends and family members, sets out to find the funniest multi-talented comedian out there today.

These days, comedy comes in all forms, from sketch to improv and from musical parodies to online shorts. And in this one-click digital age, pretty much anyone and everyone can take a shot at becoming a successful comedian. This series is on a mission to find out who really is the funniest: the overnight sensation getting millions of hits on YouTube, or the performer who's been honing their craft for years.

On this series, the goal is simple: Make people laugh, or go home. The series will open with a group of comedic competitors of various types, including both professionals and amateurs. Each week, guided by Marlon Wayans and a rotating crew of guests, these competitors will learn the ins and outs of a particular comedy style. They will then put what they've learned to the test in that week's main competition. At the end of each round, the field of competitors will narrow as one comic is sent packing.

The season will climax with one winner being selected to receive not only a cash prize but also the chance to star in an online series for Wayans' online comedy destination WhatTheFunny.com.

"Funniest Wins" is produced for TBS by Workaholic/Marlon and Eyeworks USA. Serving as executive producers are Marlon Wayans ("A Haunted House," "A Haunted House 2"), Rick Alvarez ("A Haunted House," "White Chicks") and Lisa Blum ("Scary Movie," "Legit") for Workaholic/Marlon, and JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson, Brant Pinvidic and Adam Kaloustian for Eyeworks USA ("Extreme Weight Loss," "Bar Rescue," "Opposite Worlds," "My Cat from Hell"). Steve Harris ("The Jacksons," "Mob Wives") serves as producer.
