In association with Optimystix Entertainment, ZEE TV is set to introduce ‘Zee Comedy Factory,’ a show that with showcase some of India’s top comedians. Comedy segments include visual, stand-up, funny skits, parodies and spoofs. And the comedians will have to make filmmaker Farah Khan laugh the loudest in her role as the Laughing Buddha.
The teams will have a mix of comedians, actors, and singers including Ali Asgar, Sugandha Mishra, Sanket Bhosale, Gaurav Dubey, Ballraaj, Siddharth Sagar, and Divyansh Dwivedi amongst others, reports Bollywood Hungama.
Talking about show, Khan said, “I must say this concept is a very thoughtful and timely initiative on the part of Zee TV as the sole agenda behind Zee Comedy Factory is to spread cheer and joy amidst these trying times. Rather than just being a competition between two teams of comedians, Zee Comedy Factory plans to put comedy – and a whole gamut of it ranging from slapstick to stand-up, spoofs, skits and parodies – to good use in uplifting the nation’s collective mood. We want families to sit back and relax in the comfort of their homes and laugh out loud with some of India’s top comedians tickling their funny bone. On the show, I’m called the ‘Laughing Buddha’ and all the artistes have to entertain me along with the audience. In these stressful times, I think I have got the best job and that is to be entertained by the best in the comedy business. We truly have some great comic talent on the show, and I am looking forward to having a blast laughing my heart out and see these visual challenges unfold!”
The show will premiere on 31st July and air every weekend at 10pm on ZEE TV.
