Plot Synopsis

Hosted by comedian Amanda Seales, BRING THE FUNNY is a competition series for the next generation of comedians who must impress a panel of judges -- Kenan Thompson, Chrissy Teigen, and Jeff Foxworthy -- as well as, ultimately, the American viewing audience. The series features the world's best comedic acts and, for the first time on television, embraces every style of comedy performance in one competition. In partnership with the international organization Just for Laughs, which has given rise to some of today's most successful comedic acts via its iconic festivals, tours and television series, BRING THE FUNNY features the best of the best stand-ups, sketch troupes and comedic variety acts. From solo comics to sketch troupes to musicians, magicians, puppeteers, YouTubers and more -- anyone who can make audiences laugh has the chance to receive the career-changing $250,000 prize package and see their name in lights in the LIVE finale of BRING THE FUNNY where America gets to vote for who they think is the funniest of the funny.
On Tuesday, September 17, 2019 at 10pm ET/PT, NBC premiered "The Finale Results," the season finale of BRING THE FUNNY. In the season ender, the first ever winner of BRING THE FUNNY is crowned, with the champion earning the $250,000 grand prize. Also, former contestants and surprise guests celebrate the season in brand-new comedy performances and skits. One week earlier on Tuesday, September 10, the five remaining finalists -- Lewberger, Tacarra Williams, The Chris & Paul Show, Ali Siddiq, and The Valleyfolk -- gave it their all in one final performance to impress the judges and America.
