The Funny Dance Show Preview
Have you ever wanted to watch your favorite comedians make fools of themselves on the dance floor? Well, you’re in luck because The Funny Dance Show is here to help, plus it raises money for a good cause.
Hosted by Justine Marino and Heidi Heaslet, this new competition show will showcase what happens when some rhythmically challenged stand-up comedians are forced to become dance competitors. Each week, two teams of comedians will work with professional choreographers and a group of backup dancers to learn a routine that they will later perform in front of a live audience in an effort to win $10,000 for a charity of their choice. The show is based on Marino and Heaslet’s live show developed at The World Famous Comedy Store.
The judges are comedian Loni Love, professional dancer and So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing With the Stars alum Allison Holker, and comedian Justin Martindale. In a pre-show chat with E! Online, Holker says the show is “simply about the comedy, it’s about the fun.”
“It was the most fun, funniest, craziest show I had ever seen and been a part of that I felt blessed to be there,” the DWTS veteran continued. “So, it was truly an honor when they asked me to come judge on the television show.”
The teams of comedians include Jessimae Peluso and Flula Borg vs. Candice Thompson and Maz Jobrani; Jade Catta-Pretta and Marcella Arguello vs. Daniel Franzese and Irene Choi; Fortune Feimster and Willie Hunter vs. Fahim Anwar and Becky Robinson; Ron Funches and Blair Socci vs. Adam Ray and Brad Williams; Kel Mitchell and Carly Jibson vs. Yamaneika Saunders and Jeremiah Watkins, and more.
According to the press release, “Regardless of whether they kill it on the dance floor, the end result is always a belly laugh of a story told through fancy footwork.”
In a preview video, Flula Borg dances to the Baha Men’s “Who Let the Dogs Out” while dressed as a dog and flanked by humping, panting backup dancers.
“Let me tell you something, darling — You were lit, like a campfire,” says Loni Love, “That was funny. I hope you keep it up throughout the rest of the show.”
Judge Allison Holker adds, “Thank you for enlightening us with something we’ve never seen before.”
“You, sir, have doggie style,” says Justin Martindale. “It was feral, it was rabid, it had balls.”
The Funny Dance Show airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on E!
