Description

Vir Das, International Emmy Award winner and India’s biggest stand-up comedian, presents an ode to the fool in all of us. Prepare to be transported across the world in search of freedom, happiness, democracy, censorship, dead snakes, double arrests, Emmy wins, animal rescues, alleged mental well-being, and very viral degradation. A show for all the people who don’t have their shit together, and all the idiots who missed the big chapter on adulting. For all the fools, by a decorated one. 'No artist embodies the globalization of stand-up like Vir Das' (New York Times).
