Zee Café presents the best of British comedy with Stand Up Knights

‘I bought a cross-trainer to keep fit. I suppose that it’s not enough to just buy it.’
‘If a stranger offers you a piece of candy...take two...’
‘Please don’t eat me! I have a wife and kids... ... ...Eat them!’
‘Think I’m Sarcastic? Watch Me Pretend To Care!’

Zee Café is all set to ensure viewers enjoy humour which is refreshingly different as the channel launches yet another new property – Stand-Up Knights. Premiering December 23, 2017, weekends at 11 pm, the show will bring two internationally acclaimed British stand-up comedy shows – Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow: Series 1 and Live at the Apollo: Series 12.

Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow: Series 1 is a British stand-up comedy television series hosted by McIntyre, the world’s most successful stand-up comedian. He visits UK's most prestigious and iconic comedy venues, unearthing a raft of comedy's brightest new talent and finest comedians en route. Each episode features a routine from McIntyre along with few other comedians. Known for his unique and inoffensive humour, the King of comedy is known to leave his audience howling with laughter. Live at the Apollo is a British stand-up comedy program performed from the Hammersmith Apollo Theatre in west London. The shows are recorded live in front of an audience of more than 3,500 people at the iconic theatre. Considered as one of the most popular and prestigious venues, the theatre has been home to numerous spectacular performances by some of the biggest artists across the globe.

Commenting on the launch of this exciting new property, Aparna Bhosle, Business Cluster Head - Premium channels - ‎Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited (ZEEL), said, “With the rise of home-grown talent and venues, the craze of stand-up comedy is soaring in India. The audience is constantly on the look-out for never-seen-before content that is intelligent and engaging.
