ComicView is an American stand-up comedy show that aired on BET on Tuesdays and Fridays from September 1992 to December 2008. In May 2014, BET announced the return of ComicView. The show has been the launching pad for such comedians as Dante, D.L. Hughley, Cedric the Entertainer, Sommore, and Rodney Perry.

In the show's later years, the show moved to different cities, such as Atlanta, Los Angeles, Miami and New Orleans. The episodes aired during the 2005-2006 season were filmed in New Orleans less than a month before Hurricane Katrina. Before the show aired, a message dedicated the show to the citizens of New Orleans. Another incarnation entitled ComicView: One Mic Stand began in September 2008 with actor Kevin Hart as the host. Its recent incarnation was renamed back to ComicView which began in May 2014 with comedian Sommore returning as the new host. Dante won more ComicView awards than any other comedian in history.
