Hyderabad: Hyderabadi comedy, once popularised by stalwart comedians like Babban Khan, has, of late been relegated to a dying art, due to lack of sponsors. But the younger generation of comedians, specialising in Hyderabadi humour, are actively using social media platforms to reach out to tech savvy Hyderabadi youth across the globe.

These comedians post short videos of performances on ‘Facebook’ and ‘YouTube’, periodically.  In turn, they get appreciation, fans, subscribers and even money depending on the hits.

 

One of the groups to go online is the city-based ‘Baigan Vines,’ with five youngsters—Aamer Bin Ishaq, Osama Tipu, Mohammed Zeeshan, Syed Farhan Ahmed and Muhammad Bin Ishaq.

Osama Tipu, says, “Our videos are popular. We base our videos on current topics that affect Hyderabadis. We have clean and slick comedy with no vulgarity for added humour. We also explore the lives of Hyderabadis, people from different areas in the city, and give it a comic twist. Our subscribers are based in European countries and the Middle East.”

Another popular group ‘Hyderabad Diaries’, run by two youngsters Abrar Khan and Sharukh Khan was started in 2010 and is also quite popular. It has a following about 1.5 lakh and is a hit with the youth the world over.
