Radio City out to infuse a fresh dose of humour with ‘Komedy Ka Kingkong’

Radio City has come up with its latest offering – ‘Komedy Ka Kingkong’ – a show that promises to be a laugh riot and provide listeners with a daily dose of humour through light-hearted and hilarious comic routines.

‘Komedy Ka Kingkong’ is an audience-interactive show that will be aired from Monday to Saturday at 8 pm and will showcase the finest and most humorous performances of 32 comedians selected from Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Lucknow.

Listeners can also participate in this show by calling and leaving their jokes on an IVRS-activated number through the ‘listener contest’.

Said Vikas Verma, Head Programming, Radio City, “Radio City is the only FM radio station in India that provides a dedicated comedy show. ‘Komedy Ka Kingkong’ is another addition to our bouquet of comedy programmes like ‘Babbar She’r, ‘Popat’, and ‘Tadka Trailor’, which have been extremely loved by our listeners. ‘Komedy Ka Kingkong’ 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.”

Host-cum-judge Vinay Pathak, the popular standup comedian, will judge the preliminary rounds of the show. Pathak will add to the daily dose of humour with his wacky antics and rib-tickling comic spoofs. The final verdict will be done through public votes that will judge the semi-final and the final rounds through SMS voting.

The grand winner of the show will be crowned ‘Komedy Ka Kingkong’ and get an opportunity to host the comedy show.
