Vir’s comedy plan for small towns
While standup comedy has become a major attraction in metro cities, actor and standup comedian Vir Das (right) says that he wants to spread this trend to smaller cities as well. The 36-year-old has already started planning his Indian tour, in which he will include tier-II cities as well.
“Vir feels that standup comedy shows will be widely accepted everywhere. In his upcoming India tour Vir is not just tapping into metros but covering most of the smaller cities of the country, where there is no concept of gigs or standup comedy nights,” says a source close to the actor, adding, “In his recent tour he has covered cities like Simla and Gwalior and aims at performing in various other tier-II cities.”
Confirming the news, Vir says, “Small towns are not small anymore, they are showing more potential in terms of being open to entertainment and I plan to expand the horizon for those cities at the same level as metros, with these shows.”
