MUMBAI: NDTV Prime is proud to present Stand Up Planet, a travelogue hosted by L.A.-based Indian American comic, Hasan Minhaj (Arrested Development, MTV’s Failosophy),  that takes viewers on a quest to find some of the best humour coming from across the world.

Along the way, Minhaj follows the jokes and personal experiences of these international comics deep into the hard truths of some of the toughest global poverty issues of our time.

With a posse of comedian friends, including Nate Bargatze, James Adomian and Michelle Buteau, Minhaj invites one comic from India and one from South Africa to take part in the biggest night of their lives – performing in an international comedy showcase and television show in Hollywood – after a stop to meet comedy legend Bill Cosby.

NDTV Prime has partnered with KCETLink, the national independent public media organization (USA) to premiere STAND UP PLANET. The two part comedy documentary will be aired on NDTV Prime as part of the channel’s Comedy time band at 10:00pm on May 17 & May 24.

Speaking on the association Vikram Chandra, Group CEO, NDTV said, “We at NDTV have always strived towards providing global quality content to our viewers and the association with KCETLink’s original comedy special STAND UP PLANET is yet another step towards achieving this. Comedy is gaining great popularity in India and through the platform of NDTV Prime; we will showcase the best in the genre to our viewers.”

STAND UP PLANET is funded by a grant from The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and produced by independent broadcaster KCETLink in association with [http://www.kontentfilms.com/] Kontent Films. The television elements were directed by David Munro, and the project’s executive producers are Wendy Hanamura, Caty Borum Chattoo, Paul S. Mason, Craig Minassian, David Munro, Xandra Castleton, Mark Decena and Teri Heyman. Munro and Castleton are the TV programís creators. The project’s transmedia executive producers and directors are Caty Borum Chattoo and Wendy Hanamura. The special is being distributed nationally in the U.S. by KCET, Link TV and Pivot TV.
