MTV to launch more humour shows

MUMBAI: Guess who is back? Not Eminem, but the whacky humour, courtesy MTV. The music channel is launching three new shows based on humour in December at the 8.30 pm slot.

MTV- Heavy Mental and Bajao d are the MTV international format shows which have been localised. CY Vs CY is an indigeniuos show with Cyrus Broacha and Sahukar.

The wild and wacky MTV Bajao d, slotted to premier on 6 December, will have Sajid Khan, the famous television comedian, in the show.

After MTV's flagship show Bakra, the new launch MTV Heavy Mental is designed to take the wacky and wry humour MTV 'ishtyle' to the next level with its second take on the Candid Camera .

Presented by electronics manufacturer BenQ, the half-hour show will feature Cyrus Broacha along side a bunch of equally whacko presenters. A funny concoction of MTV's international humour shows Boiling Point, Bad Day and Mockumentary, the show will debut on 2 December at 8:30 pm.

Elaborating on the new humour band, MTV senior VP, creative and content Cyrus Oshidar offers, "MTV Bakra and Fully Faltoo have become the corner stone of MTV humour. It all started with MTV's promos, which had a pinch of satire style, filmy spoofs. Humour connects with the viewers better and by expanding the humour band; we are looking at going beyond the 'traditional' youth audience."

MTV's Cy Vs Cy, according to a company officials, is a yet another dose of humour that the Cyrus duo- Broacha and Sahukar.

The show, premiering on 1 December, is a sitcom spoofing famous shows. The next editions will have Batman and Robin trying to catch a bus, as Santa and Banta flying a space ship; as teacher and student; as doctor and patient; as father and daughter and many more mind-boggling pair's. Once in a while, the show will also have spoofs on existing television shows, wherein Sahukar spoofs a Rendezvous with Simi Garewal. And to make things worse, the whole thing is in Hindi.

But will the audience lap the additional chuckles or will they pull a Bakra? Guess time will tell
