LOL: Qui Rira Le Dernier? will be available exclusively on Prime Video in 240 countries and territories worldwide.
"That takes me back to when I was a teenager, to that adrenaline high of getting folks to laugh with the sole purpose of having fun! For weeks, people everywhere have been talking to me about it... laughing. And that really makes me happy," said Patrick Huard, host, LOL: Qui Rira Le Dernier?. "Those are the reasons it wasn't hard to persuade me to host seasons 2 and 3. Not to mention the pleasure of finding ideas to torture participants even more!"
