Singer/songwriter John Mayer is reportedly pitching a new reality TV show about budding neighborhood comedians to U.S. network bosses.

Sources tell Us Weekly magazine that Mayer is the brains behind "My Funny Friend," which offers people the chance to nominate pals for a top comedy award and exposure.

An insider tells the publication, "His concept is: Everyone thinks they have a buddy who's so hysterical, he or she should be in comedy. So people nominate their friends, and they go through a series of evaluations to determine if they're actually funny or not.

"John thinks it has a great human-interest angle ... It's a show about dreams."

Mayer, who has hit the stage as a stand-up comedian to mixed reviews, even has a dream host in mind for the series - celebrity chef, travel expert and TV personality Anthony Bourdain.
