The German edition of the comedy series "LOL: Last One Laughing" went empty handed at this year's International Emmys. The streaming show moderated by Michael Herbig for the Amazon service Prime Video, which is scheduled to start its fourth round in April 2023, had to compete in the "Non-Scripted Entertainment" category of the Australian reality series " Love on the Spectrum" defeated.
The "LOL: Last One Laughing" format, which also exists in other countries, was launched in Germany for the first time in April 2021. The concept: A number of entertainers and comedians try to make each other laugh in a studio for several hours. The candidate who doesn't laugh wins. The winners of the first three seasons were Max Giermann, Torsten Sträter and Anke Engelke.
The International Emmys are the global offshoot of the world's most important television awards. The awards given to non-American productions are also very coveted, but do not have the status of the US awards given in Los Angeles. ZDF director Thomas Bellut was honored last year.
