Stand up comedian Kenny Sebastian is coming up with an episodic show on Amazon Prime called ‘Die Trying’ trailer of which is out now. Show is set in 2004 Bangalore where two small time musicians are trying to make it big in the music world and it’s their journey. Kenny plays one of the musicians who is quite insecure about his craft while the other guy is a little cocky and thinks of himself as a big deal which is why it will be difficult for him to take smaller assignments available to new musicians.
Kenny is somewhat of a musician already, even in his stand up acts he sometimes shows up with a guitar and might sing an act. Not many comedians in the world can make people laugh with their music but Kenny can, which is why maybe he picked up this theme to explore but he forgot this one thing called comedy. Trailer of the show is so unfunny and comic punches are extremely loose bound without any intention what soever. Kenny is respected stand up comic in India who can fill up almost any stadium but he just missed the beat here.
Comedian Kanan Gill also showed up in the trailer though it is unclear if he has a proper role or a mere guest appearance in the show but even that does not seem to be helping. It is one thing to be good at stand up and another to write a complete narrative out of that talent. Most important thing in that medium is funny dialogues, which inherently have humor in it and not the actor trying to hard to say it in a way which might come across as laughable to people. Kenny’s show will premier on streaming giant Amazon Prime on 14 February valentine’s day.
