ABOUT “FUNNIEST WINS”

This summer, TBS is teaming up with comedy heavyweight and WhatTheFunny.com founder Marlon Wayans (Scary MovieIn Living ColorThe Wayans Bros.) on Funniest Wins, a new competition series that’s all about the laughs. In the show, Wayans, along with some of his comic friends and family, put the comics through the wringer to find the funniest multi-talented comedian working today. On Funniest Wins, the goal is simple: Make people laugh, or go home. The new series will open with 10 comedic competitors of various types, who range in age from 25 to 40. Each week, guided by Marlon Wayans and a rotating crew of guests, they will learn the ins and outs of a particular comedy style, and then put that knowledge to the test in that week’s main competition. At the end of each round on Funniest Wins, one comic will be sent packing. Then at the conclusion of the season, the winner will receive a $100,000 cash prize and the chance to star in an online series for Wayans’ WhatTheFunny.com.
