He was interviewed by Lois Reitzes on WABE, and he sounds so nice! "Born in India, Das attended Harvard University for method acting and has had many serious roles in Bollywood films. But he’s also a comedian, performing in a comedy rock band called Alien Chutney and doing standup all over the world. He also has his own comedy consultant company and produces the largest comedy festival in India" and now his "performances in the United State coincide with a barrier-breaking endeavor. He will be the first Indian-born comedian to have a Netflix special."
During the interview he explained that Bollywood has a huge responsibility: many, many poor families in India go to a movie on the weekend, and Bollywood is there to make their lives happier and get them through the week.

Das has garnered attention across film, television and stand-up as the biggest English speaking comedian in India and has proven himself to be one of the country’s top entertainers.  Born and raised in India and educated in the US, Das transforms the western image of the typical Kwik-E-Mart humor into a show that is raw, edgy, intelligent and relevant.

Through his various tours, including The History of India and Battle of Das Sexes, he has sold over half a million tickets as a stand up.  While he spent his formative years in India, his comedy perspective is accessible and relatable to a mainstream audience and he is poised to take over the United States with his unique point-of-view.  He recently concluded a two-week run at London’s prestigious Soho Theatre, and this past summer, he was featured at the Montreal Just For Laughs comedy festival as well as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.


Vir climbed the ranks of the Bollywood elite in various films such as “BadMaash Company,” “Delhi Belly” and “Revolver Rani.” The Hollywood Reporter has said, “Das Exhibits a deft comic timing and a winning vulnerability… A sparkling comic performance.”


Whether Vir is on stage, behind a guitar, or in front of a camera, he is destined to be an international comedy phenomenon with an unlimited supply of hilarious misbehavior proving funny is funny.
