In "The Fast & the Funniest," a new reality competition show that ABC is developing, comedians will have to be funny on the fly.
The show follows a group of stand-ups as they travel cross-country competing in challenges and performances. The first three to reach the final destination will perform for a cash prize.
The project is produced by Page Hurwitz and Javier Winnik, who were involved with the defunct reality contest "Last Comic Standing."
"Funniest" could represent a more urgent take on the comic-competition series format made popular by "Standing," which ran for several years on NBC until it was canceled in 2008.
