Along with Das, other stand-up comedians who have their own shows with Netflix are Kevin Hart, Louis CK, Aziz Ansari, Chris Rock, Bo Burnham, Bill Burr and Russel Peters.

Comedy around India has always been dealt with a sense of condescension across the world. With his show, Das hopes to introduce the true face of Indian comedy to the rest of the world.

‘Vir Das: Abroad Understanding’ was filmed in two cities, New Delhi and New York, in front of a crowd. The live show is going to be pieced together with shots from both cities. “In about three seconds, we are going to cut to 200 clueless Americans sitting in a comedy club,” Das says in the trailer.

Cut to New York, he quips, ” Give it time. My accent will grow on you. Give it time, all right? Just give it four or five generations, we’ll be fine.”
