Everyone enjoys comedy. It lightens up moments and reminds us that everything in life need not be taken seriously. Entertaining consumers with fun, light-hearted and witty conversations has been the motto of brand Bingo!, the preferred snacking choice of millions of Indians. The entertainment quotient has been amplified and will reach wider audience through a new television show, Bingo! Comedy Adda, curated in collaboration with Star Plus. ‘Bingo! Comedy Adda’ will not be a run-of-the-mill show, but is a specially curated, complete entertainment package loaded with fun and witty segments like Mad News, Tedhe Sawaal and Boing! Pranks.
