Shashi Tharoor: Humour Sapiens

One Mic Stand: Stand-up comedy series on Amazon Prime

Latest attempt from the house of Amazon is One Mic Stand which is a 5-episode stand-up comedy series featuring celebrities and comedians.

Featuring: Shashi Tharoor, Bhuvan Bam, Taapsee Pannu, Richa Chadha, Vishal Dadlani, Zakir Khan, Kunal Kamra, Angad Singh Ranyal, Rohan Joshi, Ashish Shakya and Sapan Verma.

The main attractions of this show weren’t really Taapsee Pannu, Richa Chadha, Bhuvan Bam or Vishal Dadlani but our very own fountain of English, Shashi Tharoor. With his sharp act and a mind blowing display of wit, he outperforms the professional comics we have. With his well-written set and smooth deliveries, the risk he took of entering a comedy club in Noida was quite a success.

Who says taking risks is always bad?

So, the concept of the show is, in every episode, a professional comic opens the show, followed by a preparation video – more like ‘behind the scenes’ wherein they talk mentor the celeb and talk about the art of comedy. Post which, the celeb performs in front of a live audience that seems to heartily enjoy the gigs.

All 5 episodes are independent of each other. Start with whichever you like. If you ask us, we’d say, cut to the 5th episode. The politician-comedian team was a blast!

Here’s a sneak peak of One Mic Stand:

The other episodes would sure put a smile on your face or even make you grin, but don’t expect a LOL moment.
