Poet-comedian-actor Sailesh Lodha feels that these days comedy shows on TV help to free tension in one's life.
"Comedy-satire is today's need for everyone who could not find time for a smile or peace in their busy schedule, Lodha who was awarded "Pratibha Samman" and a cash price of Rs.1 lac told PTI.
"Every one wants a few minutes in his busy schedule to live stress free life and for which comedy takes you away from your routine thought process and acts as a stress tranquilliser," added the 'Tarak Mehta ka ulta chashma' star.
Comedian or satirist keeps environment lively and cheerful even for a few seconds while you watch it.
Lodha, who is running a show on poets in his another programme "vah vah kya baat hai", said, "If satire is not need of human life, then why TV news channels these days inserting clippings from Comedy shows," he added.
