MUMBAI, India – July 7, 2022 – Amazon Prime Video today dropped the rib-tickling trailer of Comicstaan Season 3. As the cult comedy series returns with eight episodes, the hunt for India’s next best stand-up comedian will comprise a new format with host Kusha Kapila joining the series regular, Abish Mathew. Joining the judge’s panel will be ace comedians Zakir Khan, Sumukhi Suresh, Neeti Palta and Kenny Sebastian. Created by Only Much Louder (OML), the series will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on July 15 in India and across 240 countries and territories worldwide.
As per the new format, the eight contestants will be trained in a different genre of comedy by seven different mentors each week. The mentors include Rahul Subramanian, Sapan Verma, Rohan Joshi, Prashasti Singh, Kannan Gill, Aadar Malik and Anu Menon. The contestants will deliver their funniest punchlines as they tackle various formats including anecdotal comedy, topical comedy, improv and an all new roast comedy, among others.
“I’m absolutely thrilled about the new season of Comicstaan and it feels great to get back on the judge’s seat,” said Zakir Khan. “There is a certain rawness in each of the eight contestants we have this time. I must say that I’m really impressed with their growth during the course of this season, as they tested themselves on various genres of comedy. I have been associated with Amazon Prime Video in more ways than one, and this feels like home for me.”
