Marathi Cinema and Theatre has had many comedy icons over the years – Dada Kondke, Lakshmikant Berde, Satish Tare, Prashant Damle, Ashok Saraf, P. L. Deshpande who have immortalized comedy in our minds. The advent of Stand-up Comedy has also had a big impact on the treatment of comedy in our movies and theatre.
