“LOL: whoever laughs comes out! “Why doesn’t Blanche Gardin want to do the show?
Comedian Blanche Gardin on Thursday, April 20, rejected the proposal of the video-on-demand platform Amazon Prime, which invited him to take part in the fourth season of the program “LOL: Whoever laughs, come out! “, announced in March on social networks.
Blanche Gardin thought about it on Thursday April 20th “It would really hurt his ass” to accept such an offer from the platform to participate in the program “LOL: who laughs is coming out!”. acclaimed by audiences whose new season has aired on Amazon Prime Video for the past few months.
