Mumbai: Stand-up comedy group AIB is set to launch its own television news comedy show.
The four-member group, which first hit headlines for conducting an expletive-laced show “AIB Roast” that involved Bollywood celebrities like Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor, took to Twitter to announce its new project.
“Super excited to announce our latest project. Our most ambitious one yet,” AIB tweeted alongwith a three-minute funny video that explained the concept of the show.
Tanmay Bhat is seen telling two fans of AIB that the upcoming show will be on the lines of famous American news satirical series “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” and “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”
The fans keep relating the show with the infamous January roast but the AIB men tell them the new project has nothing to do with the roast and though they do not reveal the details, they say their new work will be a “news comedy TV show”.
It will air on channels Star Plus and Star World and will be available on Hotstar.
