After five sold-out shows with his NYC debut in 2015, actor-comedian Vir Das will return to the famed comedy venue Carolines on Broadway, in New York City, March 10 through March 12.
Talking to the American Bazaar, Das said, “There isn’t a club more credible than Carolines or an audience more seasoned than New York City anywhere in the world. If you’re looking to be a global comedian, that should be your first stop. I’m looking forward to bringing the Indian vibe to the big apple….every single idol I’ve ever had has performed on their stage.”
The Delhi Belly actor, who is known for his impeccable comic timing, will perform at New York’s top club in the evenings with two shows per day: Friday, Saturday – 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m.; Sunday – 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
