Now that “Last Comic Standing” is down to its final six hopeful comics, it’s time for a comedy roast. Gilbert Gottfried jumps in for a few insults while Jeff Ross mentors the comedians on the subtle art of roasting.

While much of the episode involves the comics roasting Gottfried, “Last Comic Standing” gives them a taste of their own medicine when Gottfried gets to roast right back. He has a lot of practice with this sort of humor too.

Once the contestants get through their roasts at Hollywood’s Avalon Ballroom, two comics will face off and perform for the judges in a head-to-head showdown.

This is their chance to shine — only three episodes are left before the end of Season 8.

The roast episode of “Last Comic Standing” airs Thursday, July 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
