As the biggest English speaking comedian in India, Vir is taking his authentic point-of-view worldwide and is quickly becoming a global phenomenon with his unique and original perspective.

Through his various tours, including The History of India and Battle of Das Sexes, he has sold over half a million tickets as a stand up and is winning over comedy fans around the world. He has made record-setting premiere appearances across the US, and he recently concluded a two-week run at London's prestigious Soho Theatre.
