NJPAC presents Vir Das - India

(NEWARK, NJ) -- New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents comedian Vir Das - India's biggest comedian who is on the biggest tour ever attempted by an Indian comic: 33 countries, every continent except Antarctica. The tour comes to NJPAC on Sunday, November 24, 2024 at 7:00pm.

Vir Das has not just hit the comedy mega-leagues, he's conquered them, thanks to his boundless comedic talent, wildly successful world tours, and four incredible Netflix specials. His global success is a testament to the power of comedy to connect people from all corners of the world.

Das' latest Netflix comedy special, Landing, recently earned an International Emmy® nomination for its witty cross-cultural insights and personal stories. The Daily Beast called it his "strongest hour of stand-up yet."

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 unique, Vir Das: For India, garnered an International Emmy nomination for Best Comedy in 2021.

As one of India's most prominent 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 international tours and beloved appearances in multiple fan-favorite comedy films and TV series. He starred in Judd Apatow's feature The Bubble on Netflix and 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.
