New Delhi: Prime Video on Tuesday unveiled the rib-tickling trailer of its upcoming crowd-work special ‘Rahul Talks to People’, featuring popular comedian Rahul Subramanian.
For the first-time ever, the one-hour special features Rahul performing one of his well-loved and enjoyed comedy formats- Crowdwork- a spontaneous and impromptu interaction with audiences in Chennai, Bengaluru, Delhi, Kolkata, and Mumbai.
In ‘Rahul Talks to People’, the stand-up comic will be seen engaging in unscripted and unrehearsed conversations with six different set of audiences across five cities – capturing a range of people from a marketing professional to a bunch of friends. And with his sharp sense of humor, ability to be extempore and instant improvisations, Rahul turns these ordinary conversations like stressful jobs, technology, corporate culture, cricket umpiring, marketing, and more into a laugh-a-riot not just for the live audiences but also the viewers.
“I am extremely excited (and nervous) to be bringing my Crowdwork Special to streaming audiences across the world, through Prime Video. I enjoy this format a lot, as it requires both the audience as well as myself to be present and in-the-moment, all the time. The experience of starting from nothing and seeing a joke/funny moment get built from scratch is a fulfilling experience. I really-really hope when people watch this online, they have as much fun as we had in the live shows,” says Rahul.
“Unlike the classical stand-up routine, Crowdwork is different as it is completely unscripted and depends heavily on the comedian’s ability to connect with the audience members and find humour on the fly. The unpredictability of the format is what makes it extremely exciting, and challenging. The good thing is we have already done the tough part, and are very pleased with the outcome. Now I am just looking forward to taking this show to a wider audience and (hopefully) make them laugh too,” he added.
Produced by OML and directed by Biswa Kalyan Rath, ‘Rahul Talks To People’ will premiere on Prime Video from March 30.
