Acclaimed comedians namely Praveen Kumar, Karthik Kumar, and Rajmohan will be mentoring and judging contestants over 8 episodes as they find the next best Tamil standup comedian
Amazon Prime Video’s Comicstaan Semma Comedy Pa, a much-awaited Tamil adaptation of audiences’ favorite Amazon Original Series Comicstaan is all set to release on 11th September 2020.
The launch of the series marks Prime Video’s foray into Original content in the Tamil language. In the all-new series, Tamil’s top three comedians Praveen Kumar, Karthik Kumar, and Rajmohan Arumugam, experts in their respective genres of comedy, mentor selected contestants who will compete to become the king or queen of comedy in the Tamil stand-up scene.
Rajamohan feels that the show is likely to be a game-changer! The comedians in the show have explored as many as 8 different genres of Comedy, providing a wide range of genres for audiences.
Raj shares, “There are two kinds of comedy happening in Chennai one is very traditional for example – Crazy Mohan kind of comedy, and the other one is this where the new generation is looking at Comedy as a career opportunity on the live stage. The cinema culture is very big, there are a variety of options available in that area, while the stand-up comedy is a small unit, like a very small family.”
“The smallest of the smallest films in the south make big-ticket sales, while stand-up even though makes 50-100 ticket sales, we feel very excited and happy. So something like Comicstaan Semma Comedy Pa will change the game. I look at Comicstaan Semma Comedy Pa as a game changer. There are some 7 to 8 genres we have explored in this show and every single episode is a great learning experience for all of us, not just for the participants”, he further adds.
Comicstaan Semma Comedy Pa is expected to bring forth the local flavor – borrowing from the unique nuances of Tamil culture, with exclusive sets performed by each of the participants. The trailer gives a sneak-peek into an all-new edition where six of Tamil comedy’s best contestants will compete for the winning title of Comicstaan Semma Comedy Pa, a game-changer in the Tamil stand-up comedy scene.
