O’Farrill can only explain that the opportunity to host fucking comedians came thanks to his digital talk show yum yum extravaganza.

PARODY TO REALITY

Fucking comedians is directed by Mark Bucay (anchored2021) and according to the “standupero”, he had great freedom when it came to experimenting with humor and was even able to work closely on the script.

“We drew a little bit from these volatile personalities that chefs like Ramsay in Hell’s Kitchen suddenly have when he suddenly starts screaming and becomes overly serious like it’s life and death,” he elaborates.
