“Utna dimaag hota to comedian kyun banta”: Netizens roast comedian Vir Das for asking critics to not criticise comics unless they have written joke themselves

This comes from a man, who has never contested elections and likes to give sermons on how the government should function and country should be run. Netizens were quite quick to point out the irony.

In what came across as the ‘woke’ version of asking people to walk a mile in someone’s shoes before criticising them, standup comic Vir Das on Tuesday took to Twitter to ask people who don’t like jokes to not tell the comedians tha their jokes are lame unless they have written jokes themselves.

“If you’ve never written a joke, stood on a stage, or made a career out of this…spare us your long sanctimonious thesis on what comedy should or shouldn’t be about,” he tweeted suggesting the ones who sometimes pay to watch the comedy shows or even watch them by investing their time and energy in it cannot be critical of their jokes if they have not been a comic themselves.

This comes from a man, who has never contested elections and likes to give sermons on how the government should function and country should be run. Netizens were quite quick to point out the irony.

Some pointed out the basics of how criticism works. It is usually the audience who criticise and not the creators themselves.

Quite a few pointed out the irony.

Some replies were funnier than entire career of some of these comics put together.

Prabhat Kumar and Chandan have no chill.

OpIndia does not endorse such criticism.

And there were the ones who politely disagreed and gave him a lesson on being a performer.

Ouch.
