Just For Laughs is excited to announce that India’s biggest English-speaking comedian, Netflix star and Bollywood actor Vir Das will be bringing his new show, Manic Man World Tour, to Winnipeg at the Burton Cummings Theatre on Thursday, Feb. 24 at 7 p.m.
As India’s biggest stand-up comedian and a Bollywood star, Vir Das has now crossed over to become a global comedy sensation, filling an international vacancy for an authentic Indian perspective and being hailed by Variety magazine as a “Top 10 Comic To Watch.” Vir will next be seen in the Judd Apatow film The Bubble for Netflix.
Vir was the first comedian from India to have a stand-up special on Netflix, which since resulted in a multi-special deal with the platform for them to be the exclusive distributor of his stand-up. Since then, Vir has written and produced four Netflix specials in five years. The most recent one, Outside In, was shot entirely in quarantine with audience members virtually attending from around the world, and he just received an international Emmy nomination for the special before that, For India. Outside of his Bollywood films, Vir starred as an actor in the ABC spy dramedy Whiskey Cavalier, the Randall Park and Constance Wu starring sitcom Fresh Off the Boat, and the Netflix series Hasmokh, which Vir created and executive produced.
Entry may be subject to any COVID-19-related rules and restrictions in place at the time of the event, including but not limited to, proof of fully vaccinated status being required for entry. For more information click here.
