      Season 1 – The Great American Joke Off

      2023 Comedy Game Show List
      Reviews 60% Fewer than 50 Ratings Audience Score A comedy series that celebrates gags, wisecracks, one-liners and the simple art of telling a great joke. Hosted by Dulcé Sloan, the show features several riotous rounds in each episode that involve telling as many quick gags as possible on given categories, mashing different subjects together to create delicious puns, coming up with hilarious setups to different punchlines, or even using the texts on an audience member's phone as a springboard for jokes. Dulcé decides which team wins based on who she thinks is the funniest. Read More Read Less

      Melissa Camacho Common Sense Media Despite each round featuring a specific theme, there's no rhyme or reason to the judging, which means that sometimes things go off the rails. Jun 6, 2023 Full Review

      Secret M Some of the comedians are funny but the show overall is painfully British but somehow dumbed down for Americans and it's just not good. I love whose line so I thought I would love this but I could not. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 08/06/23 Full Review 55cdigo 30 minutes of laugh out loud fun. a few of the comedians are so so and they are only on one episode but there are regulars who are great: Rhys, Glenn, Joe I have the shows on my DISH Hopper and if I need a good laugh or feeling done I rewatch and it lifts my spirits. Dulce is good host. She is funny herself especially when she belly laughs - you have to keep laughing with her. I hope this show is renewed for many years. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/27/23 Full Review Lynda M I really do enjoy this show and actually do let out chuckles. And, while I think Dulcé Sloan is an entertaining host, the show would be more interesting if the people in the audience chose which comedian(s) is/are deemed to be the funniest in each round, and the overall winning team at the end of each episode. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/14/23 Full Review Sophie R Good so far! Nice to see a UK panel show-style programme getting started in the US. The back-and-forth you'd expect is still in early stages, possibly because of the shorter running time, but no doubt this will improve as everyone relaxes into the format. Its funny seeing the host trying to navigate/explain the competition element to a US audience, a format point of all panel shows but also completely irrelevant! Again, I'm sure this kind of thing will loosen up over the episodes, as the show hopefully stays on air and finds its feet. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/12/23 Full Review Post a review
