There’s a new Pinoy comedy series coming next month and we can hardly wait!

“Comedy Island Philippines” will be a hybrid between scripted and unscripted, pitting together Carlo Aquino, Rufa Mae Quinto, Andrea Brillantes, Jerald Napoles, Cai Cortez, Awra Briguela, Justine Luzares, and Drew Arellano as unwitting competitors in completely improvisational scenarios. Fans will definitely enjoy watching this series especially as these celebrities pull out all stops to bring laughter and entertainment to the island’s citizens in order to win the most votes and a chance to go back home.

“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,” said Quark Henares, head of Originals Philippines at Prime Video in an official statement. “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.”

The series is produced by Amazon Studios in collaboration with BASE Entertainment Asia, and will be available on Prime Video in over 240 countries and territories worldwide. The six-part series will launch with three episodes streaming back-to-back each week over a two-week period, from August 31-September 7, 2023.
