Amazon Prime Video launches Comicstaan Semma Comedy Pa
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.
Aparna Purohit, Head of India Originals, Amazon Prime Video India said that, “Locally relevant content has always been appreciated by our customers; whether it’s a scripted or unscripted series or movies that we’ve released on Amazon Prime Video. We are therefore delighted to launch our first unscripted Original Series in Tamil language, Comicstaan Semma Comedy Pa. Amazon Prime Video is always looking to create new and ingenious content for its viewers, and Comicstaan is one such series, where comedians battle it out to win the Comicstaan title. The first two seasons of Comicstaan received immense love from audiences, in fact, it made standup comedy aspirational for the youth. It not only launched the winners, but also became a spring board of success for many talented contestants! We are now excited to bring to the audience a recreation of the series, produced exclusively in Tamil - borrowing from the local cultural nuances to appeal to our Tamil audiences.”
‘We are glad to be a part of a project like Comicstaan Semma Comedy Pa, which aims to provide a global platform to local talent. Leveraging our robust collaboration with Amazon Prime Video with multiple Stand-up Comedy specials, Comicstaan was our collective effort to find and groom fresh, new voices in comedy. With Comicstaan Semma Comedy Pa, it is our endeavor to continue the same momentum and bring to the forefront more creative, relatable and interesting comedy formats to viewers.” said Dhruv Sheth, Chief Operating Officer, OML Entertainment Pvt Ltd.
