Oh, we couldn’t be more excited for this!
Graham Norton has just landed a brand new presenting gig!
The Cork man will front a new series on Prime Video that marks its first-ever Irish show.
The streaming service announced that it is currently working on LOL: Last One Laughing Ireland, a six-part series that will be filmed right here in Ireland.
And when they were thinking of who could front the show, it was clear that there was no better man for the job than Graham Norton himself.
So what can we expect from the show?
Well, Prime Video describes it as: “Using his trademark wit, Graham Norton will oversee 10 of Ireland’s most sought-after comedy stars, brought together to make each other laugh by using every 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.”
Speaking of the show, Graham himself said: “I’m thrilled to be the host for the first Irish Original, LOL: Last One Laughing Ireland on Prime Video, and to be working on home ground for the first time in many, many years. I’m so proud of our comedy culture and it’s wonderful to have a platform to showcase Irish talent to a global audience. I can’t wait to see what our comedy masterminds do to get the laughter going.”
The series is set to start filming later this year on our shores and will be aired in 2024.
