Amazon Prime Video’s popular standup comedy format Comicstaan gets a Tamil adaptation after 2 successful seasons in Hindi.
Celebrated comedians such as 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 today released the trailer for Comicstaan Semma Comedy Pa, a much-awaited Tamil adaptation of audiences’ favorite Amazon Original Series Comicstaan. The launch of the series marks Prime Video’s foray into Original content in Tamil language.
In the all-new series, we will see 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. Created by Only Much Louder (OML) Entertainment, the eight-episode binge-worthy series will be the first of its kind on a video streaming service in Tamil language.
Adding to the local flavour, the show will be hosted by the dynamic duo of Vidyullekha Raman & Mervyn Rozario. The exciting new unscripted comedy series will launch exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on 11th September in over 200 countries and territories worldwide.
While comedy as a genre is not new to the Tamil audiences, the format of the show is fresh and engaging. It’s the first time ever that a ‘competition’ is being introduced, in a genre like Stand-up comedy for the audiences to engage with.
Comicstaan Semma Comedy Pa is expected to bring forth the local flavour – 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.
