Stress has become the way of life in today's world. The 9-5 job can fetch us a six digit salary; it's true, but in the process, we forget to enjoy the best moments of our life.
We work to achieve every possible success in our lifetime thus ignoring the precious moments that we should cherish. Comedy mixed with a story involving the everyday struggle, acts as a reminder for the necessity of fun and relaxation in our lives. Shows like Comedy Colony not only serve as a source of entertainment but also help us face the truth of life in a cheerful manner. This is the reason why shows like Comedy Colony gain immense popularity in such a short span of time.
