Amazon Prime Video’s One Mic Stand is a unique show where five celebrities take up the challenge of stand-up comedy. Shashi Tharoor, Taapsee Pannu, Richa Chadha, Vishal Dadlani and Bhuvan Bam will feature in one episode each as they get mentored by professional stand-up comedians and perform a comedy set in front of a live audience.
Now, the makers have released five new teasers of the show, and each video gives a sneak peek into the celebrity’s time on the stage.
Shashi Tharoor has been paired with Kunal Kamra for this act. The politician is quite self-aware as he takes a dig at his language skills.
Taapsee Pannu has been paired with Angad Singh Ranyal. Here, she talks about her experiences with online trolls.
Vishal Dadlani is working with comedian Rohan Joshi of AIB fame.
Richa Chadha is working with Ashish Shakya. Boyfriend Ali Fazal can be seen in the audience attending her performance.
Bhuvan Bam has been mentored by Zakir Khan.
The showrunner for One Mic Stand is Sapan Verma. He earlier said in a statement, “The concept of One Mic Stand came to me many years ago and I am glad that Amazon Prime Video was so supportive in making it happen. I think the idea of seeing your favourite people in a new vulnerable position is always endearing. Basically, I have got famous celebrities so that the show gets the views and top comedians to ensure the show is funny, so that I can just sit back and not do much.”
One Mic Stand premieres on November 15 on Amazon Prime Video.
