Actor and comedian Vir Das is on a roll! After being the first comedian out of India to have his own Netflix special, he has also been roped into the cast of ABC’s “Whiskey Cavalier” and now, Netflix has ordered two more stand-up comedy specials!

Das has found quite a lot of success as a stand-up comedian touring the 35 cities across 5 continents and through his Netflix special, “Abroad Understanding.” The hilarious special took on America from the viewpoint of an Indian, cracking joke on everything from the cereal aisle to Trump. Through his comedy, Das challenged serious topics such as nationalism, globalism, and politics. This entertaining special travels across the world as it shifts from Das’ show in his hometown of New Delhi to a cozy comedy club in New York City.

There isn’t much revealed about the Netflix specials as of yet, but we do know that the first of the new special will be shot in San Francisco on July 14th at the Regency Ballroom. From Bollywood to Hollywood, we’re loving this desi takeover!
