They are in the league of entertainers from and for the internet generation. Scoring high with YouTube videos that are viral on the net and after connecting with the youth through their tongue-in-cheek humor, the pioneers of rustic and ruthless comedy have taken to the stage.
On stage performance which introduces the Indian award functions with a twist in taste.
Catering to audiences that possess an uncanny choice of amusement, this standup comedy makes mockery of all that is applauded at the various film award ceremonies in this country.

Tanmay Bhat says loud, ‘If you make shit films, I’ll make jokes on them’.
From the seemingly comfortable political correctness that has set standards in the fraternity to the most irrelevant films being nominated and awarded, the show jeers that and more.
AIB’s march to popularity that uses Hindi films as shoulder to fire bullets.
In this 120 minute long episode the audiences are on the receiving end of dozens of laughter while the comedians armed with projectors and Indian films as aid, leverage the excitement with every pun (intended) on its way.
Brave or Naïve? Whose court is the ball in anyways?
The show has dialogues and punches scripted to pull viewers out of their cocoons of comfort which is why this prescription does not work well for audiences of all kinds. The boys time and again bring down the goodwill created by our film industry by drawing parallels with anything but decency.
You have seen them on screen; now see them perform live.
Today AIB is among the highest viewed Indian channel on YouTube along with a few other competitors. After the considerable share of controversies over spoofs of big banner films, the boys find stage performances to be the perfect medium where restrictions over projecting annoyance with the Hindi film world is rare.

The show that runs on low production cost is gradually gaining popularity for its concept and format. Find your name on the invitee list of The Royal Turds if you wish to experience a ride that taunts and teases the Indian film fabric but ensures a delightful experience for the tolerant at heart.
