Amazon Prime taps Eugenio Derbez to host Mexican comedian competition, “LOL: Last One Laughing”

Mexican comedy star Eugenio Derbez will host a new Amazon Prime Video competition in which 10 Mexican comedians match wits and witty lines in pursuit of one million Mexican pesos.

LOL: Last One Laughing will premiere later this year. It’s adapted from a Japanese TV series, Hitoshi Matsumoto Presents Documental, in which ten comedians bet money in an “anything goes” battle.

Last One Laughing is like nothing I’ve seen in comedy and certainly very different from anything I’ve done on television in my career,” said Derbez. “I’m really excited to show the world some of the amazing comedic talent coming out of my country.”

“We’re thrilled to be working with such a talented actor and creator like Eugenio Derbez who continues to bring global attention to Mexico’s comedy scene,” said Pablo Iacoviello, Head of Content – Latin America, Amazon Prime Video. “There has never been a show like this before in Mexico, and we think Prime members are going to love how Derbez and these amazing comedians go wild and test each other’s limits in the name of laughter.”

The roster of comedians has not yet been announced.
