Patrick Hart will present the Quebec version LOL: One last laugh – Renamed LOL: Who will laugh last? – Expected on Amazon Prime video later this year.
The concept of LOL: One last laugh Simple. Ten famous comedians find themselves in the same studio with the challenge of not laughing at the antics and jokes of their peers. The first offense is the warning given in the form of a yellow card, worthy of the offending candidate. The second result is dismissal. The last remaining comic won a sum, which was designed for an organization or charity of his choice.
This time, French-speaking comedians will enter the competition. Their identity has not yet been revealed, but we already know that their adventures will be broadcast via Amazon Prime Video across 240 countries and territories across the planet.
In a statement issued Tuesday by the Video-on-Demand service, Patrick Huard said he was “very excited” by the new plan.
“You know comedians are provoked by laughter, but what you may not know is that they are often true fans of others and for them, not being funny is torture. I’m so happy to be able to animate for 10 minutes! Especially with a bunch of comedians accepting the challenge. It’s crazy!” Can we read.
This is a 100% Quebec version – and made by Attraction (Live from the universe) – The Canadian version hosted by Jay Paruchal, which was launched last month, will be back in a few months. The original Japanese concept was adopted in France, Brazil, Germany and Australia, among other places.
“Quebec is at the forefront of comedy, including hosting the largest international comedy festival ever, with comedians always performing in full theaters,” said James Farrell, director of local originals productions at Amazon Studios.
