Plot Synopsis

In each half-hour episode of COMEDY KNOCKOUT, host Damien Lemon sends three comics into a battle of high stakes comedic gameplay. With points doled out based on the audience's applause, it's all about one-upmanship as competitors attempt to land massive comedy blows and whip the rowdy crowd into a frenzy of raucous laughter. The whole time, the comedians throw roast-like, rapid-fire jabs at each other to knock their opponents off balance. Each show ends with one comedian crowned Champion, one eliminated, and one ultimately forced to face the crowd and apologize for going down in shameful defeat. In the series opener, "Three Inches of Twisted Fury," Chris Distefano gives relationship advice in "JV Life Coach"; Arden Myrin has a whale of a time harpooning jokes at Sean Patton's expense; and Sean, Chris and Arden try to stay abreast of weird web products in "Letsy Who Bought It." Other comedians appearing in Season 1 include: Jim Norton, Sherrod Small, Kevin Barnett, Jamie Lee, Yamaneika Saunders, Kurt Metzger, Jordan Carlos, Michelle Buteau and more. On Monday, August 1, 2016 at 11pm ET/PT, truTV broadcast the summer premiere of COMEDY KNOCKOUT. In the mid-seaosn premiere, "Mouse Condoms," Jay Oakerson reveals why Annie Lederman needs a mouth guard in museums, Kurt Metzger roasts Jay on his family goals, and Annie has some explaining to do after getting caught with her pants down...literally. The 16-episode second season of COMEDY KNOCKOUT premiered on Thursday, December 1, 2016 from 11pm-Midnight ET/PT, as truTV debuted back-to-back new episodes. In the season opener (11pm), "This is My Art, Dad!," Dulce Sloan illustrates the benefits of twerking at zero gravity, Dave Hill becomes the number one all-time CKO crowd high-fiver, and Casey James Salengo is ready to "Stomp a mudhole in both their candy asses." Then, in the night's second new episode (11:30pm), "Sexism!," Gina Yashere definitely knows what not to say at a gun store, Tone Bell reveals an intimate past with an audience member, and Matt Kirshen goes hard on Tone's failed sitcom history. COMEDY KNOCKOUT returned with new episodes on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at 11pm ET/PT on truTV. In the mid-season premiere, "Other's Day," Jessimae Peluso makes an impassioned plea to the Church of Scientology, Clayton English explains how Jessimae's name is synonymous with trailer parks, and Noah Gardenswartz is now very worried about his weight.
After a two-month break, COMEDY KNOCKOUT returned with new episodes on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 from 11pm-Midnight ET/PT, as truTV debuted back-to-back new episodes. In the fall premiere (11pm), "Free Kitchens," Julian McCullough knows what not to tell his kids about sex, Arden Myrin reveals Julian is a mistake she'd make at a wedding, and Joel Kim Booster makes an impassioned defense of a famous chef with bleach tips. Then, in the night's second new episode (11:30pm), "Grandfathers of Anarchy," Noah Gardenswartz definitely knows what not to say as a drug dealer, Gina Yashere pulls no punches about juice cleanses, and Matteo Lane reveals which Easter bunny he'd swipe right for.
