Byron Allen has another syndicated show featuring stand-up comedians hitting a TV station near you this fall, and Funny You Should Ask, it’s a game show.
Jon Kelley, former host/correspondent on entertainment tabloid show Extra, will host the half-hour game show, which has cleared more than 95 percent of America’s TV territory for a two-year run starting in September 2017. In New York City, Funny You Should Ask will air on WLNY-TV 10/55; in Los Angeles, on both KCAL 9 and KDOC; and in Chicago, WCIU.
The weekday or weeknight half-hour game show will have contestants competing with each other as they ask questions to a panel of comedians.
The premiere week will feature Howie Mandel, Anthony Anderson, Tom Arnold, Louie Anderson, Sheryl Underwood, Cedric the Entertainer, Jon Lovitz, Sherri Shepherd, Natasha Leggero, Bill Bellamy, Harland Williams, Jackee, Gary Owen, Maria Bamford, Dave Coulier, Pauly Shore, and Caroline Rhea.
