“Backdoor – emergency exit”. What is Polsat’s new comedy offer all about?
Porta dos Fundos, the group behind the “Backdoor” format, is a leading comedy producer in Brazil and one of the world’s leading comedy filmmakers. The channel was launched on the YouTube platform in 2012 as a comedy experiment aimed at creating an alternative to traditional comedy. Currently, the brand founded by Antonio Tabeta, Fabio Porchat, Gregorio Duvivier, Ian SBF and Joao Vicente de Castro has exceeded 17.1 million subscribers and has over 6.8 billion video views.
– The entertainment channel Porta dos Fundos has produced over 2,000 short comedy films during its 10 years of operation. One of the things I’m most proud of is international action, so rare in Brazilian comedy, says Gregorio Duviver. – Porta can boast today that it is known all over the world, just like in Mexico, where Backdoor became the most popular viral in Latin America: the video “Harina” has almost 60 million views. I grew up surrounded by humor from elsewhere in the world, and I’m so glad that global north is also amused by southern comedy, and the exchange works both ways. I am very happy that Porta dos Fundos has been appreciated and that people from all over the world are interested and amused by what we create. I believe humor can be universal, that it can be something that unites us in such a very divided world.
