Comedian and actor Vir Das has hit the global comedy mega-leagues thanks to his boundless comedic talent, wildly successful world tours, and four incredible Netflix specials. His latest special, Landing, premiered on the streamer on December 26, 2022. Decider praised his “refreshingly different take on our current obsession with ‘punching up’ and ‘cancel culture,’” and Paste Magazine gushed “even if he’s sending barbs someone’s way, his criticisms are packaged up so beautifully that you’re simply in awe until they hit their mark.” Vir taped the special in New York City after a hit run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where the New York Times declared “no artist embodies the globalization of stand-up like Vir Das.” Vir’s third Netflix special Vir Das: For India garnered an International Emmy nomination for Best Comedy in 2021.

As one of India’s biggest stand-up comedians and a Bollywood star, Vir was the second best-selling live actor in the country in 2022. He has increasingly gained worldwide appeal through his various international tours as well as his beloved appearances in multiple fan favorite comedy films and TV series. He starred in Judd Apatow’s feature The Bubble on Netflix, as well as the ABC spy dramedy Whiskey Cavalier in the role of “Jai Datta” opposite Scott Foley and Lauren Cohen. Vir has created, produced, and starred in multiple series, including the scripted thriller Hasmokh for Netflix and the unscripted travel show Jestination Unknown for Amazon’s Prime Video. He is also the lead singer for India’s premiere comedy-rock band Alien Chutney.

Vir Das: “Mind Fool Tour” arrives at the Kennedy Center on Friday, January 12, 2024.
