Atlanta's Louis Ramey makes final five in 'Last Comic Standing'

Oops. Spoiler alert. Sorry.

Anyway, Atlanta comedian Louis Ramey was voted — by me and a few (million?) other members of the American viewing public — into the "Last Comic Standing" top five last night. Rounding out the rest of the season six finalists are Jeff Dye, Marcus, Iliza Shlesinger and Jim Tavare.

Ron G, also from Atlanta, wasn't so lucky. He was one of three comics voted off, after totally kicking ass performing at last week's showdown.

Here's Ron G's dream-snatchingly funny set from last Thursday's top-eight showdown. It came as a surprise because he hadn't wowed me in previous episodes, but by the end of this performance — if I had aisles in my living room, I would have been rolling in them.

Also eliminated last night were Adam Hunter and my personal favorite Sean Cullen, whose humorous (and Canadian!) song stylings were apparently no match for the cute face and sometimes-funniness of his mortal enemy Jeff Dye.

May Louis Ramey, the most experienced of the bunch and recognized as "the best" by eliminated contestant Esther Ku, strike the remaining four comics down in a (figurative) bloodbath of (actual) hilarity.
