Comedian and Actor Vir Das has emerged as one of the most beloved voices in comedy worldwide with The New York Times gushing “No artist embodies the globalization of stand-up like Vir Das.” His fourth and most recent Netflix comedy special Landing premiered to universal praise from fans and critics alike earning Das a 2023 International Emmy Nomination for “Best Comedy,” his second overall. His previous Netflix special Vir Das: For India was nominated for a 2021 International Emmy for “Best Comedy” as well. Landing, which Vir also directed, is a story about freedom, foolishness, the west, the east, the notion of home, and what it means to be a citizen of one nation in a global world. The special which The Daily Beast called Das’ “strongest hour of stand-up yet“ and which Decider declared offers “plenty of food for thought…for both current citizens of India, Indian-American children of immigrants, and even those of us with no ties to India,” is a capstone to Vir having performed the show more than 180 times in countries across the globe including a wildly successful run at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
As India’s biggest stand-up comedian and a Bollywood star, Vir was the second best-selling live act in the country last year. He is currently on his international Mind Fool tour which is stopping in countries on every continent except Antarctica in 2023-2024. His most massive tour yet, Mind Fool will bring the international star to multiple iconic venues including Carnegie Hall in New York City, Esplenade in Singapore, Dubai Opera in UAE, and The Eventim Apollo in London, to name a few. In addition to his success on the standup comedy stage, Vir has created, produced, and starred in multiple series, including the ABC spy drama-comedy Whiskey Cavalier, the thriller Hasmokh for Netflix, and the travel show Jestination Unknown for Amazon. He starred in Judd Apatow’s Netflix feature The Bubble and he is currently developing his own single-camera comedy with Fox, CBS Studios and Andy Samberg’s production company Party Over Here. He is also the lead singer for India’s premiere comedy-rock band Alien Chutney.
