In an attempt to scout for the best comedians and potential entertainers around India, SAB TV has rolled out Comedy Superstars which will showcase talent house performers of the Bollywood industry - Shekhar Suman, Sushmita Sen and Sonu Sood as judges in the show. Jay Soni and Sudeepa Singh will host the show.
This show will prove to be a medium for the aspirants to make their dreams come true as stand-up comedians.
But! Of what we believe, unlike reality comedy shows, Comedy Superstars will not only groom the newbies on the sense of comic timing but also the entertainment factor!
The show will focus on expressions, acting and dance to thereby giving them an opportunity to prepare themselves to be a complete package than just focusing on comedy.
While at the press conference today, we wondered what prompted the makers of Pyramid Films to rope in the three celebrities?
We guess, Sushmita Sen has been roped in to keep the entertainment quotient alive while Sonu Sood for his credited acting and Shekhar Suman - of course, for his comic timing...
Now moving on to the format of the show, twelve contestants will be judged on five main attributes of a comedian through various parameters of comedy.
The ultimate comedy superstar will need to possess certain attributes such good humor, the ability to entertain audiences and with an exceptional personality. The format of Comedy Superstar is integrated in terms of stages, elimination, selection process and scoring. The judges will be the only ones judging the performances and it is not open to social media, audience polling, etc, which makes the format different from the other shows on the small screen.
Comedy Superstars is all set to hit the small screen from the August 22 at 10 pm!
