‘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.
