But as far as comedy in reality shows is concerned, the Comedy Circus on Sony Entertainment Channel is way at the top. It has been ruling the comedy genre for four years on the trot now. It has been successful in providing unique comedy every time. The specialty of the show is the ability to provide newer jokes every time.
Stand up comedians like Krishna Abhishek, Sudesh Lahiri and Kapil Sharma along with Bharati and Siddhartha Jadhav is the star attraction of the serial today. The programme is based on various themes which may or may not be related to thereal life. Archana Puran Singh, the lady mentioned above in one of the earlier programmes, is the judge of the show ever since the show started.
Some years back, on Star One Channel too there was a reality comedy show. There were all stand up comedians. In fact, there were stand up comedians only on the show. The former cricketer and commentator Navjot Singh Sidhu and Shekhar Suman were the judges of the show. Stand up comedians like Sunil Pal and Raju Shrivastava dominated the show with their sheer brilliance.
Laughter is one such thing that no one dislikes. As a result, there is a lot of viewershipfor such programmes. There are the daily soups on the small screen where most of the things shown there resemble real lives of some or the other. In the real sense, those are the ‘reality shows’. As the topics in such shows are more or less the same, no one wants to get involved in the same thoughts again.
That is why the liking for comedy shows grows automatically. That is the only place where we can forget the world for a while, that is the only place, where it has the power to make us put out of our mind the worries. Moreover, the competition is taking the quality of the programmes higher and higher.
The stand up comedians, their creative team and all the people involved with the production of such shows in any way, in my opinion, deserve all the respect that we can give them. Firstly, it is they all who make such quality shows possible. The second reason is that it is the most difficult thing to make someone laugh. And these people are doing it with the same passion years and years along.
