TV is swamped with comedy shows but this one insists it’s different. Queens of Comedy, to be aired on TLC, is a talent hunt show for India’s best comedienne.
A source reveals that the shoot for the show, which will run for two months, begins in August in Mumbai and is expected to air in September.
Actress Richa Chadha, funnyman Rohan Joshi and comedienne Kaneez Surka are onboard as judges. “The idea is to discover more women who can tickle the funny bone, a space that men rule at the moment,” the source informed.
According to reports, Richa has been roped in to play a lawyer in an eight-episode American series, a courtroom drama set against the 1970s racism-related unrest in Chicago.
Richa’s next big screen project is “Fukrey Returns”, which will see her reprise the character Bholi Punjaban from the 2013 film “Fukrey”.
