NBC is taking yet another shot at "Last Comic Standing," this time with Wanda Sykes executive producing.
According to The Hollywood Reporter
, the eighth season of "Last Comic Standing" will premiere in the summer of 2014, though it's unclear if Sykes will serve as host as well.
"Last Comic Standing" has been absent for three years, but the comic showcase has always been erratic, running through hosts like most people go through socks. Jay Mohr, Anthony Clark, Bill Bellamy, Fearne Cotton and Craig Robinson have all hosted previously.
"Last Comic Standing" winners have included Dat Phan, John Heffron, Alonzo Bodden, Josh Blue, John Reep, Iliza Shlesinger and Filipe Esparza.
