The line-up of Amazon Original One Mic Stand 2 has already created a buzz among the fans who have been ardently waiting to watch their favourite celebrities showcase their funny side. All set to be streamed on Prime Video this Friday, One Mic Stand Season 2 will see the likes of Karan Johar, Sunny Leone, Raftaar, Chetan Bhagat, and Faye D’Souza taking the center stage as they bring out their inner stand-up comic.

Talking about his experience on the show, filmmaker Karan said, “Comedy is one of the most loved genres on streaming sites so naturally when I got a call to do One Mic Stand 2 I had to say yes. You know I’m always a sport when it comes to taking a joke and I finally got the opportunity to do that myself. I wanted to take up this challenge because I have been in front of the camera several times but this show is not even remotely close to what I have done in the past. I was especially attracted to the format of the show, which is perfect because I got a chance to connect with the audience more candidly. I think it’s beautiful to get artists from completely different worlds and immerse themselves in comedy while collaborating with a pro comic that shares the same like mindedness and individuality. This is what resonates with the audiences making this show a complete hit.”

On working with his mentor Sumukhi Suresh, Karan said, “Sumukhi was such a blast to work with, her humour is always so well-timed. She understood my voice and guided me in writing a set that fit me like a glove, working with strong female voices is always enthralling, and we connected on our common love for creating content.  “Stand-up comedy has been on the rise in India in English and regional languages, this show moves in the right direction to accelerate this upcoming form of entertainment in India and hopefully inspire a lot of aspiring comics and open doors for them.”

Watch One Mic Stand Season 2 starting October 22, 2021, exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
