“Comedy Knockout”
Premieres Thursday, April 21 at 10:30 PM on truTV
        In each of the 10 half-hour episodes, host Damien Lemon (Guy Code) sends three comics into a battle of high stakes comedic gameplay. Adding to the fun, is the fact that the audience has sole discretion to decide who is the funniest person in the room. Comedians features this season include Jim Norton, Sherrod Small, Kevin Barnett, Jamie Lee, Arden Myrin, Chris Distefano and many more.
         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. 
          Damien Lemon has worked at all of the top comedy clubs across New York City as well as many  of the top clubs across the country. He was chosen a “New Face” of 2013’s Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival as well as a featured performer on Whitney Cumming’s Gala show that aired on HBO.
