It depends on context. The speaker may have been being sarcastic, if what the other person had said was meant to be funny, but the speaker didn't think it was.

Or - it's possible that the other person is genuinely funny and the speaker is actually suggesting that he/she should try being a standup comedian at The Apollo.
