Amazon Original LOL: Last One Laughing Australia Official Trailer

The Six-Part Comedy Experiment Hosted by Rebel Wilson Premieres Friday, June 19th on Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Prime Video has released the official trailer for LOL: Last One Laughing Australia. Hosted by Rebel Wilson, the six-episode comedic series premieres June 19, 2020 exclusively on Prime Video. The series will premiere new episodes weekly, culminating with its finale on July 3, 2020.

Hosted by Rebel Wilson, LOL: Last One Laughing Australia, 10 professional comedians go head-to-head to see who can keep a straight face while simultaneously trying to make their opponents laugh, in this first-of-its-kind comedy social experiment. Comedians who laugh will be eliminated one-by-one, until a single comedian remains. With $100,000 on the line, who will Rebel crown the Last One Laughing?

In the six-hour competition, there are no rules. Comedians can say and do whatever they like, except laugh. Laugh softly, and you’ll receive a yellow card violation. A second offence will earn you a red card elimination and cost you the game. Missing out on $100,000 is no laughing matter!

LOL: Last One Laughing Australia, is hosted and executive produced by Australian actress, writer and producer Rebel Wilson 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.

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: stand-up, character, improvisational, and physical comedy with the occasional prop cameo.

LOL: Last One Laughing Australia follows the format of the successful Amazon Original series from Japan, HITOSHI MATSUMOTO Presents Documental, produced by and starring comedian Hitoshi Matsumoto who leads ten comedians betting their own money in an anything goes “battle of laughter behind closed doors.” The format was also launched in Mexico with comedian Eugenio Derbez as the laugh-house’s host.

LOL: Last One Laughing joins the growing list of Australian Amazon Original series, including The Test: A New Era for Australia’s Team, the series of 10 stand-up comedy specials by some of Australia’s best comedians, and the upcoming Back to the Rafters.
