Newsflash: KSL Notices Area Man

[Local TV News] In a stunning turn of events last night, KSL 5 actually gave up a whole 90 seconds to West Jordan comedian Marcus, a finalist on a little NBC series called Last Comic Standing. Apparently, no joke, KSL was heretofore unaware that a local was on a reality-competition on their own network. Seriously.

In last night's episode, Marcus was once again the first pick to move on to the next round; rumor/common sense has it that he'll be one of the Final 5 when the Last Comic Standing winner is announced on Aug. 7.

Check out your Local News Leader's piece on Marcus here; the two-minute replay (Marcus up first) below:

  1. I used to think there was a double standard when a LDS and non-LDS from Utah were on television. That the news was not interested in showing anyone could succeed that was not mormon. But maybe the issue is PR. The LDS church probably makes sure the news knows when a member is on television, where if they are not mormon the media outlets actually have know...find out by working.
