The performance, for which Kumar was not paid, included political jokes on Brexit and colonialism. Following the event, the Lord’s Taverners released a statement emphasising the apolitical nature of the organisation and expressing that they did not support the behaviour of some members of the crowd, which included booing, heckling and the throwing of a bread roll. In response to the event, Kumar told The Guardian: “I’m sort of amazed by how fascinated people are by the whole thing. It’s not the first time I’ve been booed off stage I consider it the life of being a comedian – they have a right to boo me.”
