NBC aired the final round of Last Comic Standing “Invitationals” auditions on Wednesday night, which eventually whittled down the field of stand-up comedians from 100 invitees down to 41 semifinalists still in the running for a $250,000 prize and network development deal.

By the way, in case you want the full math, over the first five hours, NBC and Last Comic showed 65 of the 100 comedians invited to audition at the “Invitationals” in front of judges Norm Macdonald, Roseanne Barr and Keenen Ivory Wayans, and hosted by Anthony Jeselnik. That left 35 stand-up comedians on the cutting room floor after editing — depriving them of a TV credit (and possibly also the cash and cache that comes with that) while also sparing them from perhaps unfair eliminations. Better luck next year?

Congrats to the 41 comedians named above, who’ll compete in semifinal action next Wednesday night in primetime on NBC.

The next two weeks (Aug. 19 and Aug. 26, 2015, will see semifinal action) narrow the field to 10 comedians.

On Sept. 2, 2015, those 10 finalists will compete in paired-off head-to-head single-elimination rounds to reach a final five, who will compete for the grand prize on Sept. 9, to be determined by the judges.
