Mumbai: The laughter will die down. The show is over. Comic virtuoso Sunil Grover`s breakaway show ‘Mad In India’ will go off the air May 4.

According to sources, the decision to end the ill-fated laughathon was taken this week. It was arrived at after much deliberation.

"The show just wasn`t working. The comparisons with `Comedy Nights With Kapil` killed the show. The show`s creative team first tried to move away from Kapil Sharma`s format.

"When that didn`t work, they tried to give more of the same thing as Kapil`s show on `Mad In India`. Finally, the show was neither here nor there. The channel has taken a decision to take it off," said the source.

‘Mad In India’ went on air in February, a while after Sunil left Kapil`s show.
