The show is hosted by Cyrus Broacha, a quick-witted comic, and is assessed by a panel of well-known comedians.
Pratyasha is the first female comedian from Assam. She works as a full-time copywriter and has been doing stand-up comedy for the past 2.5 years.
Her comedy tackles topics like body acceptance, gender injustice, and defying societal standards, among others.
Her performances and refreshing sense of humor are inspired by everyday events that many women can relate to.
“It was my first time on a reality show camera. Even though I have recorded many sets before, this felt surreal. I was quite nervous but seeing my childhood heroes Cyrus Broacha and Anu Menon at an arm’s length was very warm and welcoming,” Pratyasha said.
“Everyone in the team was professional and helpful that made the entire experience very comfortable. I am delighted to have represented Assam on national TV,” she said.
Comedy scenario in India
The Indian comedy culture appears to be flourishing, but there is always room for improvement, particularly among female comedians.
The setting in which a comedian can grow and prosper must be sadistic and dismal since that is when the light of comedy shines brightest. And, given the current state of affairs in the country, the level of comedy will be unrivaled.
