New comedy / reality hybrid LOL: Last One Laughing Australia begins on Amazon Prime Video in a month’s time.
Rebel Wilson hosts as 10 professional comedians try to keep a straight face while simultaneously trying to make their opponents laugh.
Comedians who laugh will be eliminated one-by-one, until a single comedian remains. Laugh softly, and you’ll receive a yellow card violation. A second offence will earn you a red card elimination and cost you the $100,000 prize.
The six part series is based on a Japanese format Documental and is produced by Endemol Shine. It is also the first local series that was announced by Amazon Prime Video.
LOL: Last One Laughing Australia, is hosted and executive produced by Australian actress, writer and producer Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect, The Hustle, Isn’t It Romantic) and features leading Australian comedians Dilruk Jayasinha, Frank Woodley, Nazeem Hussain, Anne Edmonds, Ed Kavalee, Becky Lucas, Joel Creasey, Nick Cody, Sam Simmons and Susie Youssef.
The first-of its-kind comedy experiment, produced in conjunction with Endemol Shine Australia, LOL: Last One Laughing Australia is executive produced by Marty Benson and David McDonald. The series was shot in 2019, and filmed non-stop to capture the hilarious action and banter from Rebel Wilson and the Australian comedians who each bring diverse comedic styles to the table; from stand-up, character, improvisational and physical comedy with the occasional prop cameo.
The first two episodes will launch Friday June 19 on Amazon Prime Video (episodes three and four will release on June 26, and the fifth and sixth (finale) episodes on Friday, July 3).
