My name is…

Vidur Kapur took to comedy after an undergraduate degree at the London School of Economics and a PhD from the pinnacle of Economics, the University of Chicago. And thank god he did. The world needs a comic of his caliber more than it needs another economist – he is fabulously hilarious!

Ok, with that warning out of the way, forget the first 25 seconds, but the rest is ROFLMAO material.

Maybe I find it funny because I’ve had my name mangled so many times, albeit mostly well-meaningly. I wonder what would happen if the next time I answered with – “Look, my name is Shripriya. It is a classical, ancient, Indian name…” Even if I never use his line, the thought of doing so will certainly cross my mind!

I discovered Vidur here

    DontheCat – I fixed it. As usual an IE issue (I hate IE!). But it should work now. Thanks for the heads up.

    Hi Shripriya, glad you liked him. As you said, I am sure the world could use more of his comic skills than his eco skills, though going from his credentials, he probably is equally good at either..

    @ Sqrlnt – so true. I have met a few people who are good in multiple things (business and medicine or economics and comedy!)- they are unique human beings!

    @Yuva/Samira – Yes, Russell Peters is cool too, but I find this guy has more edge.

    @ TGFI – 🙂
