The "Last Comic Standing" was Villa Rica, Georgia native Rod Man at last night's finale of the NBC summer series.

The popular comic won the coveted title and a prize package worth $250,000, including a talent deal and development deal for a television show.
Judges Roseanne Barr, Keenen Ivory Wayans and Russell Peters chose Rod Man as the winner of the competition as season eight drew to a close. He has been working as a comic for 19 years.

Now Rod Man and the other top five finalists, including Carr, Patterson, Joe Machi and Rocky LaPorte will tour through the fall in a "Last Comic Standing Live" nationwide tour that kicks off Sept. 16 in Tucson.
