About ‘Comedy Island Philippines’

The comedy series will see the stars venturing to the mysterious Tawa-Tawa Island, which only appears every 100 years to hold the Centennial Games. From there, the show goes unscripted as the celebrities play against each other for a chance to gain the most votes and win a trip back home, escaping the island.

“‘Comedy Island’ is an ambitious format, a hybrid between reality, comedy, and adventure, shot on an island with massive sets, which features both the best comedic talent from the two major networks in the Philippines, and the new emerging voices including the  up-and-coming social media superstars. We can’t wait to entertain our Pinoy audiences with this show,” said Prime Video Philippines’ Originals head Quark Henares.

“‘Comedy Island Philippines’ sets the tone and standard of the authentic Filipino  stories and genres we want to share with our audiences at home and abroad, and our commitment to the local TV and film industry,” Henares added.

Set to be a six-part series, Prime Video will release three episodes each week, running the series for two weeks until September 7.

The show will be available for streaming in the Philippines along with more than 240 other countries.
