truTV’s Comedy Knockout pits comedians against each other in a series of fast-paced challenges, with the audience ultimately deciding who is the funniest person in the room. In each episode, host Damien Lemon sends three comics into a battle of high stakes comedic gameplay. With points awarded based on the audience’s applause, competitors attempt to land massive comedy blows and whip the rowdy crowd into a frenzy of laughter. The whole time, comedians throw roast-like jabs and rapid-fire punch lines to knock their opponents off balance. Every show ends with one comedian crowned champion, one eliminated and one forced to face the crowd and apologize for going down in shameful defeat. Guest comedians will include Jim Norton, Sherrod Small, Kevin Barnett, Jamie Lee and many more.
With a standup act that can be best described as an all-inclusive bug-out session, Damien Lemon has worked at all of the top comedy clubs across New York City as well as many of the top clubs across the country. He was chosen a “New Face” of 2013’s Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival as well as a featured performer on Whitney Cumming’s Gala show on HBO. Damien has performed stand-up on Russell Simmons: The Ruckus on Comedy Central. He is a series regular on MTV’s Guy Code, helping the show become the most popular series in MTV2 history. He is also the creator and star of the hit web series D. Lemon in the Morning.
