The twenty-four selected contestants from across America will show off their skills on Who’s Got Jokes’ biggest stage ever in front of a capacity crowd at the Luxor Hotel Las Vegas.  The “Who’s Got Jokes” team conducted a nationwide talent search for America’s funniest comedians. And though it may be ‘Sin City,’ in this comedy competition the comics must keep it clean for a chance to win the “Who’s Got Jokes” title and their very own comedy special on TV One.

Returning as host is veteran comedian/actor Bill Bellamy. Joining Bellamy again this season are Tommy Mikal Ford as the “Croupier of Comedy” and Rodney Perry as the “Man on the Street.” During the show, a rotating panel of “real people” judges will vote on the comic talent they think is the funniest, and celebrity mentors and judges
will school contestants on how to bring their A-game to the Vegas stage.

Rotating celebrity judging panel will consist of R&B star Ray J (VH1’s For the Love of Ray J) Evander Holyfield (Professional Heavyweight Boxer), Wendy Raquel Robinson (The Game) and Terri J Vaughn (All of Us, Daddy’s Little Girls); and comedian George Wallace as the celebrity mentor. Musical guests include R&B bad boy Bobby Brown and hot newcomer Teairra Mari (Warner Brothers Records and Jamie Foxx’s “Blame it on the Alcohol” remix). Viewers at home will have a chance to get in on the action during the final episode by voting for the comic they think is the best via text messaging or by going to www.TVoneonline.com.

The one-hour series is produced for TV One. Executive Producers are Ralph Farquhar, Dwayne Corbitt and Bill Bellamy. The show was created by Ralph Farquhar (Moesha, The Parkers, The Proud Family, and Da Jammies, America’s hottest new animated sitcom).
