MUMBAI: After launching an integrated satirical comedy show called Fakebook with TV actress Kavita Kaushik, Reliance Broadcast Network’s entertainment channel Big Magic and 92.7 Big FM will be launching yet another integrated series.

The series called Comedy Ka Rocket will be presented in a completely fresh, upbeat and contemporary avatar; designed for viewers to embrace the weekend with variety comedy entertainment.

The first few episodes of Comedy Ka Rocket will be around Dussehra (23rdOctober), Indian weddings (30th October) and Diwali (6th November) on BIG Magic at 9 pm and every Sunday at 12 pm on 92.7 BIG FM.

Sharing some insights on the new series, Big Magic creative director Bimal Unnikrishnan said,"In sync with our viewers preferences and new programming strategy, we have conceptualised Comedy Ka Rocket, a series which will appear every Friday with optimal comedic content and an amalgamation of all genres of comedy. We are aiming to take entertainment a notch higher, with new innovations in content designing and programming. We are sure our viewers will enjoy the show and will see this as one of the best ways to embrace the weekend."

The show will have three hosts namely Karan Tacker, Vishal Singh and Gaurav Khanna, who will take audiences on a rib-tickling riot. They will be joined by different celebrities every week, adding to the fun quotient.

Big Magic will celebrate the festive season through a #FullOnLoL feast of sketches, spoofs, song parodies, mimicry, candid content, stand-up acts, dances, fun interactions with celebrities and lots more. The Dussehra special episode Bollywood Ke Villain will features popular villain Shakti Kapoor as a special guest. 

Taking a cue from the essence of this festival, villains will take centre stage this time round instead of the heroes. They will be celebrated and their importance in the life of a hero will be showcased in full splendour.

Celebrating the Wedding season, Sana Kapoor of Shaandaar fame will be seen as the celeb walk-in and the event will focus on the madness that surrounds a bollywood themed Indian wedding. The audience will witness a glimpse of the hilariously chaotic moments that leads up to a Big Fat Indian wedding. Celebrating Diwali with Bollywood Ke Patakhe, Sana Saeed and Natasa Stankovic will enthral audiences with their dance performances.
