The show will also feature some of Ireland’s biggest and best comedic talent.

LOL: Last One Laughing Ireland, a new comedy series hosted by Graham Norton, is coming to Prime Video very soon.

Also featuring some of Ireland’s biggest and best comedic talent, the series show puts an Irish spin on a format that has enjoyed success in many other countries.

The premise for the series from Prime Video reads:

“Using his trademark wit, host Graham Norton will oversee the 10 comedic stars, brought together to make each other laugh by using every unpredictable comedic tool in the box … without cracking a smile themselves.

“With the added bonus of some celebrity cameos, their performances will have viewers—but hopefully not their fellow stars—laughing out loud.

“As the clock counts down and the tension rises, whoever can outlast their competitors will be crowned the first winner of LOL: Last One Laughing Ireland and win a grand prize of €50,000 for their charity of choice.”

The 10 Irish comedians who will be competing on the programme are Aisling Bea, Amy Huberman, Catherine Bohart, David McSavage, Deirdre O’Kane, Emma Doran, Jason Byrne, Martin Angolo, Paul Tylak and Tony Cantwell.

The trailer for the series has dropped and sees all the comedians fighting to hold in their laughter before failing at the last moment resulting in a stern-faced Norton flashing them a red card.

Prime Video has also revealed that LOL: Last One Laughing Ireland will launch on the streaming service on Friday, 19 January.
