Following the success of seasons 1 and 2 of the comedy reality show Comedy Khiladigalu, Kannada general entertainment channel (GEC) Zee Kannada is all set to double the excitement and fun with the launch of its new show ‘Comedy Kiladigalu Championship’.
The show is set to bring together some of the finest talent of the previous two seasons in a showcase of wits and quick-fire laughs. The show, hosted by Anand, will air every weekend starting July 7 at 9pm, only on Zee Kannada.
Comedy Khiladigalu Championship promises to be entertaining as it brings back some of the popular performers from both seasons, including KR Pette, Nayana, GG, Suraj, Appanna and Surya who will serve as team captains. To add a bit of spice, contestants will be divided into six teams and team captains. Also returning are the celebrity judges Jaggesh, Rakshita and Yograj Bhat, who’ll mentor the teams.
The unique factor of the new show is the addition of a jury panel comprising comedians from the Sandalwood industry who will also be responsible for guiding their respective teams through various rounds, besides actively participating in the skits. Each week will comprise a unique concept, and the best performance will be rewarded in a grand celebration. The winner of the show will be chosen among the top four teams that will make it to the grand finale, who will battle it out to win the title of “Comedy Khiladigalu Champions” and a prize of Rs 10 lakh.
Raghavendra Hunsur, Business Head, Zee Kannada, said, “Over the years, Comedy Kiladigalu has emerged as a distinct property for Zee Kannada with its unique format. With the launch of Comedy Kiladigalu Championship, we are bringing together the industry’s best comical talent to a stage where the stakes are bigger, the competition is way fiercer and laughs plentiful. We are absolutely thrilled to bring back to the screen some of our yesteryear Sandalwood comedians whose jokes and on-screen presence have made Kannadigas smile ear-to-ear for years now.”
