Filipino adaptation of hit Japanese series promises to be the best one yet

MANILA, Philippines, July 10 ------ Filipinos are no stranger to reality shows. But this year, things are taking a comedic turn as Prime Video brings the reality show LOL: Last One Laughing to the Philippines. The saying “laughter is the best medicine” proves to not always be true when P1 million and a trophy are on the line. The show stars Chad Kinis, Empoy Marquez, Jayson Gainza, Jerald Napoles, Kim Molina, Negi, Pepe Herrera, Tuesday Vargas, Rufa Mae Quinto, and Victor Anastacio. Divine Tetay and Petite will also be making occasional appearances in the show.   


Inside the whimsical Bahay ni LOLa, the ten comedians, who are masters of their craft, do their best to evoke laughter among each other, all while suppressing their own, to emerge victorious in a six-hour long challenge. The Pinoy humor showcased in Last One Laughing: Philippines is not meant to just trigger bursts of laughter, but to also reflect societal issues – making this adaptation one that the viewers should really watch out for.  


Last One Laughing PH has already made history with Vice Ganda being the first queer individual to host the show since its Japanese debut in 2016. With this stint, Vice Ganda only had words of gratitude. “I was so, so, so, so, so surprised and kinilig ako (I got so excited). Sobra akong happy na ako ‘yong napiling host (I was so happy that I was chosen to host). Sobra akong na-proud (I was so proud) and I was so honored to be given the chance to host this program,” the host-comedian said.  


The noontime host shared that it was an honor to be part of the first season of Last One Laughing PH and that he couldn’t have imagined not being involved in it in some way, whether as a host or a contestant. “Sabi ko nga, kung hindi ako ‘yong kinuhang host ng programa o hindi ako napasama dito sa programa, host man o contestant tapos mapapanood ko o makikita ko ‘yon, mabibigla ako. Kinkwestyunin ko ‘yong sarili ko, ‘Bakit wala ako diyan?’ and I will feel sad,” he added.
