Last Comic Not Pictured: Reflections from Top 100 #LastComic Season 8 contestant Erin Judge

As I was live-blogging last night’s final installment of “The Invitational” rounds for the Top 100 on season 8 of Last Comic Standing, the math kept nagging at me. I mean, I knew after the two-hour premiere a couple of weeks ago, when they showed 31 comedians, that it’d take so many more weeks to even show partial stand-up sets from each and every one of the Top 100.
