Funniest Wins is an unscripted game show that is hosted by Marlon Wayans. It premiered in 2014 on the TBS network. Funniest Wins pits aspiring comedians against one another as they try to make it to the end of the competition. Each week, there is a new comedic style that their challenges are based on and at the end of each challenge, one of the contestants is eliminated. Marlon Wayans is joined by guest judges and guest mentors every week. They help to introduce the week's type of comedy and to guide the contestants as they hone their acts. The competitors come from many different walks of life - some of them are viral video sensations, some have a stand-up comedy background and others were found on the social media network Vine. Ten of these comedian hopefuls were chosen and compete in a "comedy boot-camp" for the show. Some of the comedic styles featured on the show are viral videos, sketch comedy, rap battles, and improv. The winner of Funniest Wins will receive a cash prize of $100,000 and the chance to star in an online series for Wayans' comedy website, What the Funny. Funniest Wins is rated TV-14, but some episodes are TV-MA.
