DESI DOES IT: Though his career began in India, Vir Das is crossing over in America.

Stand-up comedy may be an American invention, but just as Bollywood has put its own spin on the multiplex blockbuster, the subcontinent has also learned to coax laughs out of a captive audience. Funnyman Vir Das launched his career in India and is now working at crossing over in America. He’s already appeared on Conan numerous times, demonstrating an easy rapport with the late night host. Das now has two hour-long Netflix specials: Abroad Understanding and Losing It. His next goal? Joining The Avengers. He figures if Black Panther can do it, there must be room for Brown Cow.
