They already showed the Australian auditions over here. The people going through to the semis are Fiona O'Loughlin, Laurence Mooney, and Adam Vincent. The first two are pretty famous over here, though I personally don't like either of them. That said, I think Fiona O'Loughlin has the best chance of the three of them. She does mildly-un-PC stuff making fun of her kids, and I suppose may have an advantage having a lot of experience on TV and in front of huge audiences. Here is a clip.

If I'm not mistaken, because this is the spoiler thread, blacking the spoilers isn't necessary.

Hooray for Doug for making the Top 10, but I'm calling right now that Lavelle wins the whole thing (well...he makes me laugh too much, and I want him to win)

I'm also somewhat familiar with Jon Reep, but have never found him THAT funny. What I've seen from him on the show so far has been ... painful.
As for the others, they're all new to me, and based on what I've seen, I suppose Danté and Matt Kirshen MIGHT have potential. I didn't like Doug Benson or Gina Yashere, and REALLY didn't like the other two female comedians.
Add me to the list of people who thinks a house is what makes the show. I hope they do have one this year!

Oh, right, the very slow building delivery with smart and dry punchlines that never does well on this show. Forgot about that. Same reason Tig didn't make "the house".

Gina Yashere ............... Sabrina Matthews
I'd have them both in there, because they're both awesome.
I only had a handful of favorites in the semifinal group, and it looks like only Gina Yashere and Matt Kirshen made the finals, so I guess I'm officially rooting for someone with an accent to win. I'm also going to have to develop a crush on one of them, since all my cute boys are absent from the list. Ant must be so disappointed.
The missing name I'm really surprised about is Tommy Johnagin - for some reason I was positive he was going to do extremely well in the competition. On the plus side, none of the ones who particularly bugged me are there either, so that's something.

We were just in the UK on vacation ~ where of course it rained non-stop. We kept REPEATEDLY quoting her joke about "drizzle and subtle racism."
I'm also very glad to see that Doug Benson made it. I can't remember who most of the others are, but I know that there will be at least two comics who will make me laugh.

On the other hand, do you ever have so much respect for someone that you actually hope they don't win or get selected or what have you? I'd almost rather bask in her minimal exposure and then go on a scavenger hunt to find further material than see a genuine get whored out by NBC. From what I can tell, she has a great deal of exposure in Australia anyway.

On Wednesday, July 25th we are taping a special performance challenge at Los Angeles' MEDIEVAL TIMES! Be a part of the audience and watch the comedians put on their armor and engage in comedy jousting. ...[snip!] This taping will last approximately 3 to 3 and a half hours.

She does, but I can see why she'd see the show as an opportunity. Most comics who 'make it' here go into TV hosting, sketch comedy or radio stuff, and she's really not suitable for the first two. She could probably do breakfast radio on a commercial station, but those tend to make good comics turn to suck between blatant advertorials, bad music and lame station tags.

Truth be told, I didn't think any of the first 5 finalist we saw make it through this week were that good. I've liked some of Doug Benson's other stuff I've heard before, but he wasn't all that funny this time around.
