Comicstaan 2 Is Bigger, Better and Totally Worth the Wait
Comicstaan 2 is here!
After all the trailers, teasers and aa raha hai, aa raha hai, aa raha hai, Comicstaan 2 is out there and the first three episodes are now streaming on Amazon Prime Video. I had quite liked the first season of the show - the format, the judges, had my favourite contestants too. This is why, my expectations from the second season were higher. And did this season live up to them? It sure did because the first three episodes were a riot.
We saw the contestants present their acts based on Observational, Anecdotal and Improv forms of comedy, and for each form, they were coached by a judge-turned-mentor. Kanan for Observational, Zakir for Anecdotal and Kaneez for Improv.
The contestants are a mix of known faces and new ones. There’s a marked improvement in the way they are performing in this season as compared to the previous one.
The jokes are smarter and they are being delivered with a lot more confidence.
This is could be because they’ve seen Comicstaan 1 and have a point of reference, unlike last year’s contestants. So well, if you think you have it in you to make it to Comicstaan 3, you know what to do.
Some of the acts that really stood out were Supriya Joshi’s ‘fake-taxi’ one, Samay Raina’s act on ‘AIDS awareness’, Shreeja Chaturvedi’s ‘dustbin’ act and Aakash Gupta’s one involving the ‘overenthusiastic cooking show host’.
While the Observational and Anecdotal episodes had individual performances, the Improv one pitted contestants against one another by splitting them into teams. And honestly, the questions-only exchanges between the contestants was a lot of fun to watch.
Also, watch out for the bonus performances by the judges at the end of each episode.
Speaking of the judges, they do what they do best - mentoring, giving useful tips and comments, and Neeti, Zakir and Sumukhi are welcome additions. Hosts Urooj and Abish have just the right amount of energy and thanks to them, there’s never a dull moment on the show!
To sum it up, Comicstaan 2 is bigger and better than season 1 and is totally worth the wait.
It’s a show that should definitely be on your must-watch list. So if you haven’t watched the first three episodes, we reckon you watch them and also follow the rest of the show only on Amazon Prime Video.
