Over the years, cast members have included Jimmy Fallon, Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Kate McKinnon, Seth Meyers, Eddie Murphy, Bill Murray, Mike Myers, Amy Poehler, Chris Rock, Maya Rudolph, Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig, and many more, as well as recurring guests such as Alec Baldwin, Melissa McCarthy and Steve Martin. From executive producer Lorne Michaels, "SNL" is widely considered an American late-night institution and continues to earn critical praise.
Hosted by Amanda Seales, star comedians Kenan Thompson, Jeff Foxworthy and top social media personality Chrissy Teigen judge 40 undiscovered stand-up, variety and sketch comedy acts. The hopeful contestants compete for the biggest laughs as they perform their funniest sets, solo or in groups, live before the studio audience and judges' panel. The winning person or group takes home a grand prize of $250,000 and an invitation to perform at the world's premier international comedy festival, Just For Laughs, in Montreal.
Off with the gloves and onto the stage go funny men and women armed with their best barbs and looking for a comedy knockout. TruTV's half-hour competition series features three comics in each episode battling in fast-paced challenges, with points awarded based on positive crowd reactions. One-upmanship is the goal as competitors attempt to land massive comedy blows and whip the crowd into a frenzy of raucous laughter. A final round decides the champion, and the least-funny participant is ultimately forced to face the crowd and apologize. Comic Damien Lemon hosts.
Undiscovered talent of all ages -- singers, dancers, magicians, comics, musicians, ventriloquists and more -- appear before celebrity judges who decide which contestants move on in the competition each week.

Stand-up comics on the verge of breaking out and becoming the next big name offer insights into the motivations behind baring one's soul for a living.
Comic Billy Eichner transitions his man-on-the-street-style interviews that first became popular via the Funny or Die website to TV, roaming the sidewalks of New York and asking pedestrians outrageous pop-culture trivia questions. A correct answer could win the passersby money, even if it's just $1. The real payoff for viewers comes in watching Eichner's frenzied irreverence -- an act he honed as a member of the comedy troupe the Upright Citizens Brigade -- clash with hardened New Yorkers, many of whom gleefully play along.
