"For this, we invited international comedy and movie stars to be part of the second season including Danish Ali, Saad Haroon, Ali Gul Pir, Meera Jee, and comedy legend Shakeel Siddiqui."

Ali Sufyan Wasif, who comes from a YouTube background, said that it was very different performing in front of a live studio audience.

"It was nerve-wracking and the pace of the show was electric! With big names of the industry and an already experienced team was a huge learning experience for me - it pushed my boundaries and challenged me on a creative and emotional level."

"Comedy Adda is that unique comedy show which was the need of the hour, just the right injection to bring back a proper comedy scene on local television."
