A winner in NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” reality competition has yet to be decided, but the fate of the top five contestants on the summer television series is already sealed.

The five finalists — comedians Felipe Esparza, Mike Destefano, Myq Kaplan, Roy Wood Jr. and Tommy Johnagin — will tour the nation on a lengthy tour beginning this fall. Fifty-six dates have been confirmed from September 8 at Laxson Auditorium in Chico, CA, through February 20 at Saenger Theatre in Mobile, AL.

Other dates on the comedy tour’s calendar, as compiled by Pollstar, include September 11 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, CA; October 1 at Wilbur Theatre in Boston, MA; October 14 at Nokia Theatre in New York, NY; November 20 at the Music Theatre in Omaha, NE; and December 31 at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, GA.

Booked into the New Year, stops are also set for January 6 at Peery’s Egyptian Theater in Ogden, UT, and January 15 at the Community Theatre in Morristown, NJ, among other dates.

The winner of “Last Comic Standing” will be announced during the show’s next live broadcast on August 9 and will receive $250,000 and a talent contract with NBC in addition to a feature spot on the upcoming tour. Select dates of the tour were announced and began public onsales in spring, several weeks before the first episodes of Season Seven began airing on NBC.

But a couple markets on the itinerary do have onsales coming up in early August, according to the tour’s sparse event listings on Ticketmaster.com. A November 19 show in Prior Lake, MN, goes on sale August 14, and the January 8 stop in Denver, CO, has onsales starting August 6. Ticket prices in most markets begin around $29.

This summer signals “Last Comic Standing’s” return to the NBC reality TV lineup. The competition was absent from the network’s 2009 programming schedule, its second cancellation since debuting in 2003.
