Comicstaan Season 2 Release Date, Cast, Judges, Trailer & Reviews
Amazon Prime Video launched the Comicstaan Season 2 on July 12, 2019. It is the stand-up comedy reality contest series that comprises comedians such as Kenny Sebastian, Kanan Gill, Kaneez Surka, Biswa Kalyan Rath, and Zakir Khan as mentors and judges. Neeti Palta and Sumukhi Suresh will also serve in that ability on the second season of Comicstaan, according to IMDb data, which also claims that Urooj Ashfaq and Abish Mathew will be the hosts. Ashfaq substitutes Suresh in the role, who was a host on the season 1 of Comicstaan.
The season 2 for Comicstaan will work for a sum of 8 episodes, with the 7 judges utilizing one episode each to educate the contestants in anecdotal, observational, topical, improv, impromptu, sketch, and alternative. The finale will then bring together everyone. That is the same format that was employed for season 1.

There is no sign of Naveen Richard and Sapan Verma, who served as mentors and judges on season 1 of Comicstaan. Palta and Suresh appear to be their substitutes, although they were never announced officially, unlike Khan, who was included to the season 2 of Comicstaan series previous August together with the renewal declaration.
If you are speculating why there is no sign of Tanmay Bhat, he was dropped in November by Amazon over #MeToo issues. Bhat was exiled from AIB (All India Bakchod), the sketch comedy team he co-established, over accusations of inaction in October over sexual harassment. AIB has dissolved effectively soon after.

The reality show was a huge success last year for Amazon Prime Video, with the streaming platform stating that it was the most viewed original upon its rollout in India. Mirzapur later stole that title. Earlier in February, Amazon claimed that Comicstaan might be getting a Tamil version, which will also be produced and created by OML (Only Much Louder), the firm that controls the original.
