On the heels of sold out performances across the world, accomplished Indian actor, stand-up comedian, musician and writer, Vir Das, will be appearing at Zuiderpershuis in Antwerp on the 5th of September as part of his Boarding Das World Tour.
The number one English speaking comedian in India is undertaking this tour in support of his upcoming one-hour comedy special that will be released by Netflix on April 25. The special, titled Abroad Understanding, was shot in both New Delhi and New York, and will cement him as the first ever comedian from India to premiere a special on the streaming service. Following his American tour, Das will embark on a global stand-up tour preforming on six continents and in 20 countries.
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, he transforms the western image of the typical Kwik-E-Mart humor into a show that is raw, edgy, intelligent and relevant. His performance is a marriage between theater and comedy, captivating audiences with his fast-paced high-energy delivery and clever wit.
Over his various stand-up tours, he has sold over half a million tickets. He recently concluded a two-week run at London’s prestigious Soho Theatre, and this 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.
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.
"Das Exhibits a deft comic timing and a winning vulnerability… A sparkling comic performance."
