Writer/comedian Guy Branum ("The Mindy Project," "Chelsea Lately") brings his popular live comic show to TV in a mashup of two of the medium's best-known formats. Branum serves as host and master of ceremonies on the half-hour series, an uproarious combination of a game show sprinkled with talk-show elements. In each episode, celebrity guests come to play, not plug, in various challenges on the only talk show that literally counts. Emmy Award-winning writer Karen Kilgariff and author and journalist Casey Schreiner serve as judges, who roast the contestants and award or deduct points from them based on criteria such as telling an anecdote, flirting with the host, name dropping, being underdressed, excessive agreement, and making the audience go "awwww."

Each week two people leave their ordinary lives behind as they and a group of popular celebrities gather together to play a series of outrageous and hilarious party games that include quizzes featuring celebrity and popular culture. The civilians compete with each other, but each person has a team of celebrities for assistance, vying for the opportunity to take home a $25,000 cash prize. Adding to the party atmosphere is the host -- award-winning actress, comic and singer Jane Lynch -- and an energetic house band.
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.
