In 2017 Vir Das became the first ever Indian to have released a Netflix comedy special, which is an honor only the biggest of comedians across the globe get. His recognition and fame has earned him top spot on a global map, taking Indian comedy across the globe. Das is a force to reckon with and his first Netflix special was a testimony to that. Abroad Understanding released in April 2017 and instantly placed Das on a larger international map earning him spot alongside some of the biggest comedians globally.
Earlier this year Netflix announced that they were bringing Das back for another comedy special. So far the only comedians including the likes of Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock and Aziz Ansari have had more than a single Netflix special to their credit. This December, Netflix will bring Das back to their platform this time with a special titled Losing It. His Netflix special will be releasing on December 11th.
Speaking about it, Das said,
“The new show is called, Vir Das Losing It. It’s something I’ve been working on for the last year. The first Netflix special took me across the world and to a brand new audience. I’m hoping to show them a new side to my comedy in this show. It’s going to cover world events, some controversial topics, but also get a whole lot more personal.”
