Prime Video tease an exciting glimpse to the much-anticipated comedy series Comedy Island Japan, while officially announcing the exclusive global premiere date for November 22nd. The series features popular comedians who embark a hilarious adventure when they suddenly drift to a mysterious island. The island has been cursed for years, and if a joke goes wrong, disaster strikes. In order to break the curse of the bizarre island, they must prove their improvisation skills, facing unexpected, unreasonable challenges. This rip-roaring laughter fest is the latest addition to the Prime membership. Prime members in Japan enjoy savings, convenience, and entertainment, all in single membership.

Comedy Island Japan is navigated by Teruyoshi Uchimura, who has produced numerous comedy shows and is one of the most famous comedians in Japan. Kazumi Takayama, a former member of Nogizaka 46, also navigates the show along with him. Five well-known Japanese novelists and manga writers - Lily Franky, Akiko Higashimura, Ira Ishida, Shogo Imamura, and Shin Kibayashi - have written the series.

"Comedy Island Japan is one of our most exciting and ambitious unscripted series. It is the perfect blend of comedy, drama, and adventure mounted on a scale that has never been achieved before," said James Farrell, vice president, Local Originals, Amazon Studios. "The series stands out not only due to its novelty but also audiences will be treated to the cast's funny antics, hilarious bloopers, and unpredictable experiences, which made the show a hit when we launched it in South East Asia in the summer. And now, we're ready to bring the immense popularity of Comedy Island to our customers in Japan."

Teruyoshi Uchimura said, "Comedy as a genre has universal appeal. Through a very unique variation and adaptation to comic relief, Comedy Island Japan becomes an experimental form of entertainment. The audience will burst with laughter watching the comedians rely on raw instincts to deliver a performance to survive. The massive set of Comedy Island Japan is like something out of a blockbuster movie, and we're confident that the audience will notice and appreciate the efforts that the comedians, writers, and entire team has put in to entertain them."

"The comedians are really cool. I found myself being amused and moved by the scenes in which they were confused the situation first, but eventually developed a bond with and created laughter together," said Kazumi Takayama. "I really hope you all get to feel the same way I did."
