Colors launches new comedy show ‘The Late Night Show'

Mumbai: COLORS has launched a popular online show ‘JayHind!’, under a new name – The Late Night Show. JayHind!, the first full-format TV show online, is a stand-up show with an element of dry humor. Contemporary and edgy, JayHind! is a breakthrough in online entertainment focusing on sharp & sarcastic humour .

Launched on August 15th 2009, the show is watched by fans from places as far apart as Uganda and USA. Translating into The Late Night Show on television, the show will continue to tickle audiences across the globe. With the addition of The Late Night Show in the weekend band, COLORS marks its entry into weekend late night timeslot and strengthens its already strong lineup of weekend shows providing wholesome family entertainment. Produced by the Creative Director & Executive Producer of the Original Movers and Shakers, Abhigyan Jha of Undercover Productions Ltd., and anchored by Sumeet Raghavan, a man known for his incredible comic timing, the show is bound to create laughter ripples. The Late Night Show will air every Saturday and Sunday at 11pm, only on COLORS.

The Late Night Show, just like JayHind!, is uniquely scripted and uncensored and has an irreverent take on happenings of all kinds, across the board. It relies on a satire of news including everyone and everything that makes headlines across the world for the stand-up routine and the gags. It focuses on really entertaining and funny conversations for the interview segment which features a host of fake celebrities, especially political personalities through biting commentary on the state of affairs. The show has developed its own style of ‘animation coupled with live action’ to create a new comic paradigm.

Speaking about finally bringing JayHind! to television, Sumeet Raghavan, Anchor of The Late Night Show said, “The creative force behind JayHind! and now The Late Night Show leaves no doubt in my mind that we have a show which will create ripples in the country. It has the unique ability to strike a chord with the common man. The humourous take on everything that’s making news in and around the world is intellectually scripted and is entertaining at the same time – a rare combination!”

Excited about bringing the popular online show to television, Abhigyan Jha, Creator-Director of The Late Night Show and Founder-CEO of Undercover Productions Ltd. said, “We are happy to have found the perfect broadcast partner in COLORS. The outlook of the channel is in sync with our core beliefs. We hope to form a long standing and successful alliance with the channel and hope to grow from strength to strength. Our loyal fan base on the internet has grown consistently over the years and we hope to replicate the same with The Late Night Show.”

So block your calendars and book your date with The Late Night Show starting March 3rd 2012, every Saturday and Sunday at 11pm, only on COLORS
