Congress MP Shashi Tharoor is giving comedy a shot for the first time, and says embracing stand-up comedy has been an overwhelming experience.

Tharoor made his debut in the world of humour with “One Mic Stand”, which brings celebrities from diverse backgrounds and help them perform stand-up comedy for the very first time with one established comedian.

“I’m quite excited to be an integral part of this unique stand-up comedy series on Amazon Prime Video. Needless to say, it’s been an overwhelming experience for me to embrace stand-up comedy for the first time ever,” Tharoor said.

“At times, we do crack a joke or two in the political fraternity, though humour is always a big risk in the political world. However, this live comedy act in particular is fun and rewarding in itself. It feels like being a driver who takes his audience on a laughter journey whilst steering an unfamiliar bus all on his own,” added the former diplomat, who has been a successful author with great English vocabulary.
