“Customers have told us how much they enjoyed Stand-Up Comedy Specials on Prime Video and we have been the leaders in defining this space for local stand-up comedy. So, we’re now set to launch a brand new comedy offering, created by some of the same comedians. In collaboration with OML, we’re excited to introduce six new comedy shows available exclusively and on-demand on Amazon Prime Video,” said Vijay Subramaniam, director, content, Amazon Prime Video India.

Ajay Nair (pictured), COO, Only Much Louder, said: “We are excited to work with some of the best comedy creators in the country to produce these shows. This is the first time they are creating multi-episode long form series and Amazon Prime Video is a great home for these shows given the significant commitment they have made in the last few months to make it the destination for comedy in India.”

The series include Anuvab Pal’s mockumentary Going Viral Private Limited; Lakhon Mein Ek created by Biswa Kalyan Rath; P.G. (working title) created by Sumukhi Suresh; Varun Thakur’s horror comedy Shaitaan Haveli; Die Trying by Kenny Sebastian; and Zakir Khan’s autobiographical series Making of Sakht Launda (working title).
