With a career traversing Bollywood, music, and comedy, Vir Das has the experience of a lifetime in the entertainment industry under his belt. His Bollywood portfolio includes acclaimed films like Badmaash Company, Go Goa Gone, and Delhi Belly. Today, Das is the highest grossing English comedian in the country. His comedy pedigree speaks for itself, with a career spanning 100+ comedy shows, along with the distinction of being one of the Top 10 comics in Variety magazine’s ’10 Comedians to Watch’ list . With 2017’s Abroad Understanding, he became the first Indian comedian to have a Netflix special.
An avant-garde approach to the art, coupled with an enamouring presence on-stage has culminated into the success of his biggest tour yet, the Boarding Das Tour. With shows in over 32 cities across the world, including more than 40+ sold out shows across North America, Australia, and Europe, Boarding Das is Indian stand-up comedy on an unprecedented scale. Steely wit, refined humour, and an unwavering dedication to the art is what the best in comedy have to offer. And with Vir Das, it doesn’t get any better than that.
I'm a stand-up comedian-turned-actor-turned-vampire at night.
Comedy is a live art, and the only way to record a comedy rock album is to do it live. The audience and their laughter is just as much a part of the album sound as our music. No retakes, no room for error.
I wouldn’t call myself successful, just obsessively exhausted. The music makes me smile, the movies make me feel humbled, and the comedy saves my life every day.
