Mr Tharoor-I am sure u will make a far better stand up comic than most of the clowns here who think Comedy is all about 4 letter words😖
Listening to u took me back the classic comedy shows like Yes Minister,Are U Being Served, Black Adder etc
Why did u even get into politics?

Recently, there was a stand-up comedian who became the President of Ukraine. Here in India, we have a Member of Parliament becoming a stand-up comedian. I admire Dr. @ShashiTharoor for constantly finding new ways to connect with the youth. Looking forward to #OneMicStand https://t.co/Yp9GARqRPf

And before we go, we have only one thing to say to those who didn’t find it funny, “Pardon our recalcitrance in believing that’s true”.
