After rumors of yet another cancellation, it was announced earlier today by USA Today that NBC’s Last Comic Standing will return for another season later this year with new host Anthony Jeselnik and judge Norm Macdonald, both of whom headlined Carolines on Broadway in 2014. Jeselnik will replace season eight host J.B. Smoove while Macdonald will fill former judge Russell Peters shoes in season nine. Season eight judges Rosanne Barr and Keenan Ivory Wayans will return to their roles and Executive Producer Wanda Sykes will continue her role behind the scenes.

Last Comic, which returned in 2014 after a three years off the air, will feature six less episodes than last season. Season nine will also feature celebrity guest appearances and a new head-to-head segment, according to USA Today.

Throughout the years, Last Comic Standing finalists and winners have seen a great deal of success following the show. Former winners of Last Comic Standing include upcoming Carolines headliners Rod Man and Iliza Shlesinger. Another future Carolines headliner, Craig Robinson hosted season seven of the show in 2010.

Comedy Central has ordered eight half-hour episodes of a new weekly series titled Why with Hannibal Buress which will begin airing this June. According to Deadline, the show will feature stand-up from Buress, filmed-segments, man on the street interviews, and in-studio guests.

Since signing a development deal with Comedy Central in 2013 Buress’s career has blossomed thanks to his starring role in the hit-series Broad City, his second hour long stand-up special Hannibal Buress Live From Chicago, and headlining both the 2013 and 2014 New York Comedy Festival.

Last year Hannibal prematurely tweeted that Comedy Central had picked up his show Unemployable for ten episodes. Later that year on TBS’s Conan when he was asked why he made this up Buress stated¬† “I didn’t make it up, I just kinda put my dreams out into the world.”

Congrats to Hannibal on finally making his dreams come true!
