Radio City tickles with 'Komedy Ka King Kong'

MUMBAI: Radio City is airing a new comedy show - Komedy Ka King Kong.

The show, which started on 26 December, is a rib-ticking bonanza that will spice up the lives of its listeners with a daily dose from Monday to Saturday at 8 PM

With lighthearted and hilarious comic routines, the network says it will showcase the finest and most humorous performances of 32 comedians selected from the cities of Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Lucknow.

In order to make it an interactive, listeners may participate in this show by calling and leaving their jokes on an IVRS (interactive voice response system) activated number through the 'listener contest', informs an official release.

Komedy King Kong is hosted by the popular standup comedian Vinay Pathak, and he will also be judging the preliminary rounds of the show.

The final verdict rests with the junta as they would judge the semifinal and the final rounds through SMS voting. The grand winner of the search would be crowned Komedy Ka King Kong and would get a a lifetime opportunity to host the comedy show.

Says Radio City head of programming Vikas Verma, "Radio City is the only FM radio station in India providing a dedicated comedy show. Komedy Ka King Kong is another addition to our bouquet of comedy programmes like Babbar Sher, Popat, & Tadka Trailor, which have been appreciated by our listeners. Komedy Ka King Kong, with its daily dose of wit and spoofs, will provide the much-needed relief to the otherwise routine and hectic lives of our listeners. The comic performances will go a long way in entertaining our listeners with bouts of laughter and leave them asking for more."
