The Viral Fever Videos, or the TVF as they are better known as have hardly ever disappointed when it comes to good content. They are everything that we want our TV to be. They’ve taken Youtubing to another level in India. Pitchers, Permanent Roommates or even the Tripling, have all become our favorite web series. Each of these had plots that echo well with our sensibilities. Be it the aspiration to be entrepreneurs like in Pitchers or making relationships work in Permanent roommates or Tripling.
But what makes Humorously Yours, different?
It takes us backstage and shows the drama behind a Stand-up comedian’s life. And it isn’t like Sienfield’s “a show about nothing” and has a lot of TVFisque elements to it. The perfect wife, the (super)asshole friend who’ll always be there for you and the fantastic slice of life metaphors that run throughout the show.
The lead character, Vipul Goyal, is funny on stage. But a lot goes into making those jokes funny. How real-life humor transcends to the stage and in a comedian’s material, is an exciting journey. The show is loosely based on Goyal’s life and has just two other main characters, Vipul’s wife Kavya (played by Rasika Duggal) and friend Bhusi (played by Abhishek Bannerjee, the “Tu Beer hai..” guy from Pitchers).
Humorously Yours features a few other standups now and then, right from the introductory scene.
Humorously yours sits right at the top of TVF’s content and notches above anyone else.
With each episode running for just over 30 minutes, season 1 got over today. You can binge watch it today and show up late to office. It’ll be worth it.
Watch it on TVFplay.com. It’s not on TV. It’s TVF.
