Initially, I wasn’t so sure about this show but when I saw his netflix special I immediately booked the tickets. This guy is a gem of comedian with completely different take on subjects and the way he blended the jokes with sarcasm were pure magic.. Loved every bit.. mark my words this guy will be a big star..looking forward to his future shows.
I had a blast
I discovered Vir Das on Netflix and from the moment I knew that he was coming to Belgium I immediately knew that I would want to see his show. I love how he brings up sensitive topics but with just enough humour to lighten it up. Unfortunately I didn’t get all the jokes as I don’t understand Hindi ;) and I’m totally ignorant about politics and general Indian culture. But my friend and I had a wonderful time nonetheless.
Pretty good, even as an “outsider”
I gotta say, I booked it without really considering things. Comedy is comedy – right? Well… Not exactly. So, the theme/niche is the Indian audience. Often the language used ain’t English (often, not really meaning to say much of the total, rather, there’s words here and there inserted which tie into a joke, and ur like, errrr, ok…), and the people referred to are, well, if you ain’t Indian, you ain’t gonna know ’em.
Now, having said all that? I still enjoyed like 75% of the show. It was still pretty good, I’d rank it as 3.7 out of 5. So, look, if you are on the fence about this guy, take a chance, it won’t be your usual stuff, but I think that’s pretty cool – you get to hear jokes and humor that otherwise you just wouldn’t.
Totally go for it :)
