Rajyasree: No, let’s ask our esteemed guest/co-host.
Abhinandan: We have an esteemed guest? We only have A-bus.
Rajyasree: There’s no need to laugh, Abbas. No need to laugh at bad jokes, okay?
Abbas: No, it’s okay. I have to say my favourite part of all Newslaundry podcasts is when Abhinandan cracks a joke and laughs at himself and you can hear all the panelists looking at each other like, “Were we supposed to laugh at that?”
Abhinandan, Rajyasree, and Abbas burst out laughing.
This and a whole lot of other stuff awful and awesome as Abhinandan Sekhri and Rajyasree Sen are joined by Abbas Momin, a stand-up comedian from Mumbai, to discuss the Netflix special Dave Chappelle: The Closer; films Dune and Jai Bhim; the recreation of the song Tip Tip Barsa Paani in the film Sooryavanshi; and a Mad Angles commercial featuring Ranveer Singh.
PS. Don’t miss what the hosts discuss about The Closer.
