Whoever cracks a giggle, a chuckle and even only a temporary snort-laugh is shortly despatched packing by host Insurgent Wilson and loses out on the possibility to win the $100,000 prize cash.
In solidarity with the comedic crew (as a result of a few of them regarded just a bit bit panicked when the sport first kicked off) I tried to carry in my very own laughter so long as I may… and let’s simply say I wouldn’t be successful that prize cash.

So, not solely is their on-screen chemistry already notably compelling to observe, however in addition they know precisely learn how to push one another’s buttons.
