Making of a Comedian | Anshu Mor | TEDxIITRoorkee



A stand-up comedian by heart, Anshu Mor left his job as a director of Xbox One India. Being a founder and CEO of Talking Mime, an ‘Entertainment and Storytelling’ Company, he spearheads the digital content creation in India.

On May 29th 2016, Anshu went up on the standup comedy stage for the first time. As he stood at the backstage waiting for my turn, the production guy came and said “ 5 Mins to Stage”. This TEDx talk is a minute by minute account of all that went inside his head in those 5 mins.
