Son of Abish Season 2 is here, and it is not a cheaper version of Jimmy Fallon
Abish Mathew's talk show — Son of Abish is back with its second season. The first season debuted in 2014 and featured guests like José Covaco, Kanan Gill and Vir Das.
After a gap of three years, Mathew;s second season dabbles in improv and sketches along with interviewing guests of his choice. Doesn't that sound familiar? Is it an idea stolen from Jimmy Fallon and Kimmel? Yes and no. While the format might be the same, Abish brings in his own comedy universe to his show.
Mathew decided to address this issue in his new episode; and jokingly referred to himself as #SastaFallon. The talk show is a breather in the genre of Indian comedy shows which is dominated by Kapil Sharma.
Mathew manages to interview very interesting guests in the talk show; the first episode starred Tanmay Bhatt and Vishal Dadlani and the new episode stars TVF creators Nidhi Bisht and Biswapati Sarkar. But it is the sketches that are brilliant.
The first episode's pre-wedding video sketch was nothing short of hilarious. The viral video with his fellow comedian friends never fails to impress in the talk show. This episode's Third Wheel sketch starring Kaneez Surka and Utsav Chakraborty has the making of a viral video too.
Here's the new episode in all its glory. The highlight of the episode is definitely Abish Mathew and Sumukhi Suresh in their 'Beheti Naak' sketch:
