On yesterday's season finale of "Last Comic Standing" Iliza Shlesinger became the first female comedian to win the title. She beat Marcus, who came in second. Jeff Dye, Jim Tavare and Louis Ramey rounded out the top five. The 90 minute finale was padded with mediocre comedy by Jon Lovitz, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, "The Soup" host Joel McHale and last years winner Jon Reep.
While this season's crop of comedians was better than in years past, I felt this season lacked something, maybe because of the rushed feeling of having 12 comedians whittled down to one in only five weeks. The shortened season, probably due to the Olympics, never really let us get to know any of the comics that well. That and the fact that this season's funniest comedian, Toronto's Sean Cullen, didn't make it to the final five.
