After a two-year hiatus, NBC is bringing back the comedy series Last Comic Standing for a seventh season this summer. The Wrap reports that Craig Robinson (“The Office”, “Hot Tub Time Machine”) will host the upcoming season.
“He’s someone whose time has come,” NBC alternative programming chief Paul Telegdy told TheWrap. “He’s a brilliant stand-up… and someone we believe in as an NBC talent. We also think he’s just funny as all get-out.”
Open casting calls will take place next month in Los Angeles and New York.
