Joy Behar Guest Judges A The Battle Of The Sexes Featuring Comedians On "Better Half" Wednesday, October 10 At 11PM ET/PT
NEW YORK, October 4, 2007 � It's a week full of laughs on Bravo when James Lipton sits down with funny man Billy Crystal on "Inside The Actors Studio," the Fab Five make over an entire family on "Queer Eye," and Joy Behar guest judges a battle of the sexes featuring comedians on "Better Half."
"BETTER HALF:" In the second episode of Bravo's new reality competition series "Better Half" on Wednesday, October 10 at 11 PM ET/PT, it's a battle of the sexes as two novices, Ciara and Stephanie � a model and a scientist� take on the jobs of their "better halves" and try their hands as stand-up comedians. Ardie and Joe are both professional comedians who perform at New York City's top clubs. But now the joke's on them as teaching the art of comedy is not as easy as it seems. Comedian and host Susie Essman can attest to the challenge facing these ladies: "One minute in stand-up time is like ten hours in real life time� everything slows down and you're just walking through molasses." With only two days of training from their partners, the women will ultimately have to compete at a famed New York comedy club in front of a packed house and panel of expert judges (veteran comedians Joy Behar, Eddie Brill and Sommore) for a chance to win $20,000. Both women must take the stage � but only one will leave the Better Half. Susie Essman gives viewers behind the scenes scoop on her blog at www.BravoTV.com.
