Some like watching suspense thrillers while there are many who would prefer watching a romantic movie with their special someone. But the most popular genre around the world is definitely “Comedy”, because these funny movies make us forget our worries and relax our minds instantly. Along with the changing phase of digitization within the entertainment industry, a new trend has emerged – that of comedy web series. Let’s explore how these new mediums have changed the tastes of audiences, and how they are proving to be beneficial for everyone involved.

Your Dose of Laughter
Depending on likes and interests, different people have different preferences when it comes to comedy. Some like Slapstick comedy while there are others who would be interested only in classic, sophisticated or black comedy. Today you will find all kinds of Web original series on various OTT channels to serve the changing needs of audiences. Be it a humorous plot set around college going students, or back comedy around a murder mystery, the options are unlimited. You are bound to find your perfect dose of laughter, based on your preferences.

Convenience
Today, you have the convenience of watching the most outstanding comedy series, anywhere, anytime. You don’t necessarily have to wait for a particular day of the week, like it is in the case of a TV series. Whether you are travelling or seeking a break from work, you can simply take out your laptops or mobile phones to stream your favourite shows.

New-age Ideas
When you browse through an online DVD store in India, you will get an idea about the kind of interesting comedy films that are being made these days. Distribution companies are now looking for film distribution rights in India so that they can target the online space. Similarly, comedy web series are also being churned out by different VOD platforms on a regular basis. With so much variety to choose from, audiences are having a hard time selecting a web-series. In fact, they eventually end up binge-watching!

Alternative distribution channel
These web-series are being made in various languages, and the popular Hindi web-series are slowly creating an audience of their own. There was a time when people liked watching Youtube tv series in Hindi, but now, the market has opened up greatly with new formats and VOD channels. Even Movie distribution companies in India are turning their attention to web-series, because of their likability and profitable business model.

Chance for newcomers
People are not just limiting themselves to cool TV series to watch, but are also interested in short films with unique content. Times are looking bright for newcomers, as they are getting a chance to explore their talent through web series. If a new filmmaker understands the concept of short film distribution, he or she can take their next step by pitching their webseries idea.

So it boils down to the fact that comedy web series are making big headlines because on one side, audiences are getting to watch great content, and on the other hand, promising artists and distributors are getting a good entry point into the entertainment industry.
