ABC on mad dash for ‘Fast’ comics

Network developing reality competition

ABC is developing “The Fast and the Funniest,” a reality competish that follows comedians racing across the country in “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” style.

A cross between “Last Comic Standing” and “The Amazing Race,” “Fast and Funniest” will follow the standup performers as they travel around the U.S., completing tasks and performing along the way. The first three comics to make it to the final city will compete in a comedy faceoff for a cash prize.
