Sharing is caring

What happens when all the funny stand-up comedians come together? It’s a laughter blast on your screen! And so, the new season of Comicstaan is here to keep you on the edge of your seat as you fall (for laughing reasons only, lol). Hosted by Kusha Kapila and Abish Mathew, the third season of Comicstaan will bring new laughter.

The comedy series will be back on Amazon Prime with eight episodes on July 15. And, this time, the hunt for India’s next best stand-up comedian will comprise a new format and the judge’s panel will have ace comedians Zakir Khan, Sumukhi Suresh, Neeti Palta, and Kenny Sebastian

In an interview by WION, Sumukhi said, “I am super excited since it’s coming back after a while. After the pandemic, it will be great for the audience to have a light moment. This time, we have a new format, 4 judges, 7 exciting mentors, and a lot more in store.”

Sharing her views on the series, Neeti Palta said, “This season, the contestants are so fresh and equally balanced that it’s a very exciting contest right till the end.”

Neeti also said, “With the comedy boom, there’s more opportunity and more competition as well. And, I think, the more the competition the better the industry grows, and simultaneously more opportunities will crop up. And, it’s great to see people taking stand-up comedy as a proper profession and not something you do on the side. And, that can only happen if we have an influx of fresh talent all the time.” 

Sumukhi talked about the previous season and said, “In our previous seasons, Prashasti Singh was a contestant and now she is a mentor this season and that shows a good success graph. And, I have noticed this in previous seasons that the audience didn’t just appreciate the winner but everyone had their favorites. Like you will remember Rahul Dua, you will remember Prashasti and others. So, all in all, it was a great experience for everyone and not just the winner.” to which Neeti added, “And, seeing the number of entries we got this season just shows how well-received the show was. And, there is no dearth of talent so it’s amazing.”

This season will be featuring 8 contestants who will be guided by 7 mentors. Their panel of mentors includes Rahul Subramanian, Sapan Verma, Rohan Joshi, Prashasti Singh, Kannan Gill, Aadar Malik, and Anu Menon. The show will be live on Prime Video from July 15, 2022.
