After successfully entertaining audiences in several countries across Asia, Australia, Europe and South America, Amazon Prime Video today announced the local version of the International Amazon Original Series LOL in India. LOL- Hasse Toh Phasse, the new unscripted comedy reality show which will launch on the streaming service on April 30, promises to offer unlimited laughs.
The show pits ten professional comedians against each other for six consecutive hours with two objectives – to make the others in the house laugh and more importantly, ensure that they do not laugh or even smile themselves. The last contestant to remain straight-faced will be the winner and will take home a grand prize. India’s finest comedy entertainers Aadar Malik, Aakash Gupta, Aditi Mittal, Ankita Shrivastava, Cyrus Broacha, Gaurav Gera, Kusha Kapila, Mallika Dua, Sunil Grover and Suresh Menon make the incredible line-up of contestants who will be under the constant watch of the hosts Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani.

Arshad Warsi, popular movie star who steps into the hot seat of a host and referee alongside dear friend Boman Irani said ,“Be it Munna Bhai M.B.B.S., Lage Raho Munna Bhai or Jolly L.L.B, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Boman and I am delighted to be collaborating with him again for LOL-Hasse Toh Phasse. Boman and I are tasked with keeping a close eye on the ten contestants who will be coming under one roof only with one intention – to be the last one laughing. I can’t wait to see what these talented comedians come up with and how far they’ll go to take home the prize. I am certain that the audiences will love this quirky format Amazon Prime Video is bringing to India after its success across Europe, South America and other Asian countries.”
Noted Film Actor Boman Irani who plays co-host on the show shared, “I love exploring and experimenting with diverse concepts as much as I can, and I am delighted that with LOL- Hasse Toh Phasse, I get to be a part of a show that offers comedy in a fresh new avtaar. The Indian audiences love comedy, and with an entirely unique format with ten of India’s most hilarious comedians, this show is power-packed with absolute insanity, laughter and entertainment. It’s always fun to work with Arshad and I am certainly looking forward to experiencing all the madness alongside him.”
LOL – Hasse Toh Phasse will join the thousands of TV shows and movies from Hollywood and Bollywood in the Prime Video catalog.
