The Great Indian Comedy Show Strikes Gold at the 'Rapa Awards'

Mumbai, May 11, 2006: Stand-up comedians, Punjabi cowboys, dysfunctional superheroes, self-aware saas-bahu serial members & deranged surgeons! The Great Indian Comedy Show on Star One, a show that gives viewers their daily dose of whacked-out humour, has bagged the award for 'The Best Comedy Show on Television' at the RAPA (Radio and Television Advertising Practitioners' Association of India) Awards this year.

In February 2006, The Great Indian Comedy Show (TGICS) donned a new look, as the Laughter Champions (Raju Srivastav, Sunil Pal, Gurpreet Ghuggi & Deepak Raja) took over as the stand-up hosts of the show, and continued to topple people off their seats with laughter! TGICS also boasts of a sensational ensemble cast along with the inimitable Ranvir Shorey & Vinay Pathak. TGICS has proved to be not just a show… but a medical mission to cure weeknight blues with experimental laughter therapy!

The RAPA Awards were instituted thirty years ago and are recognized nationwide by the radio and television professionals. Every year, these awards felicitate professionals for their outstanding creative contribution to the entertainment industry.

Star One has created a strong mark amongst viewers through their popular & differentiated programming in just a span of one year. Launched in November 2004, the channel has strived to keep up to the promise to push the boundaries of Hindi general entertainment programming and offer the best to its viewers.
