PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEES JOHN MCCAIN AND BARACK OBAMA TAPE FUNNY CAMPAIGN ADS FOR NBC'S MUST-SEE SEASON FINALE OF "LAST COMIC STANDING" ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 7 (8:00-9:30 P.M. ET) WHEN AMERICA'S CHOICE FOR THE FUNNIEST COMIC IN THE WORLD WILL BE REVEALED

JON LOVITZ, TRIUMPH THE INSULT COMIC DOG, JOEL MCHALE AND REIGNING LCS CHAMPION JON REEP GUEST STAR, ALONG WITH RICHARD BELZER, STEVE SCHIRRIPA AND THIS SEASON'S TOP 12 FINALISTS!

BURBANK, CA - August 4, 2008 - America's vote to determine NBC's "Last Comic Standing" will be revealed on Thursday, August 7 (8:00-9:30 p.m. ET) in the show's lively, must-see season finale that will also feature funny campaign ads from Presidential nominees Barack Obama and John McCain, and special guest appearances by Jon Lovitz, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Joel McHale and current "Last Comic Standing" champion Jon Reep. Bill Bellamy hosts the Emmy-nominated series and Fearne Cotton is the co-host.

In last week's episode, Jeff Dye (Seattle, Washington), Louis Ramey (Queens, NY), Iliza Shlesinger (Hollywood, California) and Jim Tavare (London, England) were chosen by America's vote to be in the top five, joining Marcus (West Jordan, Utah), who won a spot in the final five by winning the challenge in the previous week's episode. This week, viewers will learn which of the final five America chose to be the "Last Comic Standing" and win the $250,000 grand prize, including an exclusive talent deal with NBC, a brand new Honda Pilot, and a starring appearance in Jubilee! at Bally's Las Vegas.

But first, it's a night of non-stop laughs with "Last Comic Standing" campaign ads filmed by Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama and Republican Presidential nominee John McCain, and stand-up performances by Jon Lovitz and reigning "Last Comic Standing" champion Jon Reep. Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and Joel McHale, host of E! Entertainment's "The Soup," also guest star.

This season's top 12 finalists also return, including God's Pottery, performing the opening song specially written for the finale. In addition, Richard Belzer and Steve Schirripa, who were celebrity talent scouts in the season premiere and the semi-final episodes, will make guest appearances. Then, at the end of the star-studded season finale, the "Last Comic Standing" will be revealed!

"Last Comic Standing" is produced by Peter Engel Productions and Universal Media Studios. The executive producers are Peter Engel ("Saved By the Bell," "The Next Best Thing"), David Friedman (NBC's "Last Call with Carson Daly," "NBC's New Years Eve with Carson Daly") and Barry Katz ("Action," "Dane Cook's Tourgasm").
