NBC has ordered a pilot of the reality show, Comedy Colosseum from producer Vin Di Bona.

Based on the hit Japanese show, Theiromonea, the show features comedians vying for a $10,000 prize in an arena in front of a live audience that decides who wins or loses; Dean Edwards and Olivia Lee have been hired as hosts. According to The Hollywood Reporter, each comedian will be judged solely on the laughter of randomly selected and unsuspecting members of the crowd.

Ron de Moraes is directing the pilot for Comedy Colosseum; no word on a pick-up.
