Amy Huberman, Aisling Bea, Jason Byrne and more: the stellar line up for a new all-Irish comedy show ‘LOL: Last One Laughing’ is announced
An incredible line-up of Ireland's best comedians will feature on Prime Video's new show and it’s hosted by none other than Graham Norton.
Are you ready for a laugh? The line-up for Prime Video’s new Irish comedy show has been revealed, and it includes 10 comedians that have been splitting sides in Ireland and beyond. What’s more, it’s fronted by Graham Norton, who is no stranger to hosting great TV and eliciting a giggle from viewers.
LOL: Last One Laughing brings 10 comedic stars together to make each other laugh by using every tool in the box – but the kicker is that they can’t crack a smile themselves. Whoever can outlast their competitors as the last one not laughing will not only be crowned the winner, but will take home a €50,000 prize for a charity of their choice.
The 10 competitors are Aisling Bea, Amy Huberman, Catherine Bohart, David McSavage, Deirdre O’Kane, Emma Doran, Jason Byrne, Martin Angolo, Paul Tylak, and Tony Cantwell.
